Fall watering restrictions in effect across Las Vegas Valley

The summer months of firing up the sprinkler and drip systems six days a week are over, the Southern Nevada Water Authority is reminding residents.

Fall watering restrictions began on Sept. 1 and run through Oct. 31.

To avoid a fine, limit watering to three days a week. Watering on Sunday is prohibited.

Violators will first receive a written warning. Fines in North Las Vegas and Henderson start at $40 for the average home. In Las Vegas, fines for average homes start at $80.
