Fall watering restrictions begin in Las Vegas Valley

Updated September 1, 2017 - 7:21 pm

It still feels like summer, but it’s time to fall back to using less water.

Friday marked the beginning of fall watering restrictions in the Las Vegas Valley. Sprinkler and drip-system use is limited to three assigned days a week through Oct. 31, when the winter schedule kicks in and landscape watering is allowed once a week.

Watering on Sundays is prohibited year-round.

Also as of Friday, commercial businesses are required to shut off their mist cooling systems until June 1.

The landscape watering rules were adopted by the authority in 2003 as a temporary response to ongoing drought on the Colorado River, which provides 90 percent of the valley’s water supply. They were later made permanent.
