City Lawn Watering Rules

⚠️Public Announcement Regarding Water Use⚠️

Due to the recent heatwave, water usage has spiked causing a strain on the City infrastructure we all share. This demand, along with minor disturbances caused by construction, has resulted in potential lasting and expensive damage to utilities. Residents are asked to do their part and not to overwater their lawns and to avoid wasteful watering during restricted hours (10am-6pm). To further conserve water, the City’s splash pad at lagoon park will only be operated between noon-6pm daily for the near future. City staff will also step up enforcement of the city’s lawn watering rules which are established in city code.

The following rules can be found in Jordan City Code section §51.06

The City Council finds that water conservation is critical to the city’s welfare and to the efficient and economical provision of safe water.  When necessary and in its sole discretion, the city shall enforce restrictions on the use of water outside of any residence or business, including use of private water supplies to the extent allowed by state law, other than on permitted days and hours.

Normal use of outside water will be at level 1. At the discretion of the Public Works Director, the restrictions may be raised to level 2 or level 3 dependent upon water availability. A notice containing the provisions of the upgraded level shall be delivered to each property within the city limits and posted in the lobby at city hall. The notice shall include the dates and times that the upgraded level shall commence.  

Level 1

Watering lawns.  Watering lawns is not permitted between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. year round.  In addition, watering lawns will only be permitted on an odd/even basis.  A total lawn watering ban shall be in effect for properties on the odd side of the street on even numbered days of the month, and for properties on the even side of the street on odd days of the month.

Watering shrubs, flowers and new lawns.  Watering shrubs, flowers and plants and also watering new sod or seed that has been planted within the previous 30 days are unrestricted activities. Over-seeding an established lawn is not considered new seed.  The property owner must provide evidence of the date the new sod or seed was planted. 

Other outside water use.  Reasonable recreational use of outside water is permitted. Use of outside water for washing vehicles shall not occur between 10:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m.  Monday through Friday.  The Fire Department is exempt from these restrictions when used while performing their duties for the city. 

Business use.  A business which relies heavily upon use of outside water and which use may conflict with these restrictions, may apply to the Director of Public Works for a permit allowing increased usage. The permit may include reasonable restrictions as necessary. Each permit determination shall be subject to Council approval.

Level 2

The use of outside water is permitted as listed above, except the permitted days and hours of use shall be set by the Director of Public Works. No recreational use of outside water will be permitted.  The Director of Public Works may revise permits issued for businesses when Level 2 restrictions are imposed. 

Level 3

A total ban of the use of all outside water within the city. The exceptions listed in Level 1 will be permitted. No recreational use of outside water will be permitted.  The Director of Public Works may revise permits issued for businesses when Level 3 restrictions are imposed.  

Any member of the City of Jordan staff may be appointed by the Public Works Director or Chief of Police to enforce this section. City personnel not in uniform shall, upon request, show identification as a City of Jordan employee. The civil administrative penalty for violation of this section will be set by the City Council in the fee schedule, and reviewed on a yearly basis. This penalty may be added to the property owner’s city water bill.
