Nassau County Sprinkling Regulations


The use of water for irrigation purposes for lawns, shrubs, trees, plants and vegetation of any type is regulated by Nassau County ordinances. Absolutely no watering is allowed from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Watering is permitted all other hours under the following conditions:

1. Even-numbered properties and premises without numbers may be watered on even dates.

2. Residents with odd house numbers may water on odd dates.

These regulations apply to automatic and manually-controlled sprinkler systems as well as hose sprinkling. Remember, the district does not wish to restrict the use of water, but we do want to stop the waste of this valuable resource. Use only what you need.
