When can I water my lawn?

New Brighton's water restriction program has different levels and the level of the ban will be based on daily water usage monitored by the city, a ten-day weather forecast, pumping capacity and other factors.

While the green level ban is in place, New Brighton residents using municipal water are restricted to an odd/even watering ban. Residents of even-numbered homes may water only on even-numbered days of the month. Residents of odd-numbered homes may water only on odd-numbered days of the month.

While the yellow level ban is in place, New Brighton residents using municipal water are still restricted to an odd/even watering ban. However, a time-of-day watering ban is also enacted, prohibiting watering from 6 am to 9 pm each day. In addition, New Brighton residents are prohibited from filling swimming pools and residential car washing. Water monitors are actively deployed and violators are ticketed.

While the red level ban is in place, all outdoor water use is prohibited, including all sprinkling and watering, filling swimming pools and residential car washing. Water monitors are actively deployed and violators are ticketed.
