Watch Your Watering As Weather Warms Up


Spring has sprung and brought the warmer weather with it.

As we inch towards summer, now is the time to brush up on the current City of Visalia watering schedule. 

In effect now through November, the City's current schedule outlines how residents and businesses can take care of landscaping, lawns, and turf.

Watering Details

- Visalians can use drip irrigation and perform handheld watering on landscaped or vegetated areas any day of the week before the hours of 8 a.m. and after the hours of 6 p.m.

- Irrigating with a watering can or hose that has a positive shut-off nozzle is allowed any time.

- Sprinkler irrigation can be used on Tuesdays and Saturdays before 8 a.m. and after 6 p.m. on Tuesdays and Saturdays.

- Sprinkler irrigation can be used on Wednesdays and Sundays before 8 a.m. and after 6 p.m. on Wednesdays and Sundays.

Even with the seasonal watering change, Visalia remains ready for rain. Which means watering is not allowed when more than 0.25 in of rainfall is received. If it's more than a sprinkle outside, we recommend turning off your sprinklers.

Every Drop Counts

While early 2023 brought heavy rain, the groundwater table the City relies on for its water supply remains low. Water saving measures are in place to ensure Visalia follows statewide conservation regulations.

In observance of the City of Visalia Water Conservation Ordinance, all citizens, landscapers, gardeners, and business owners that oversee watering of homes or properties are asked to remember that every drop counts.

Adherence to the Water Conservation Ordinance is required, wasting water is subject to a violation notice, citation and fine.
