Monticello has a Water Conservation Ordinance that specifies an odd/even lawn watering schedule from June 1 to September 30 every year. This distributes demand during the seasons when lawns are being irrigated and eases the burden on our water supply.
If your address ends in an odd number, you’re allowed to water on odd numbered calendar days. If your address ends in an even number, you’re allowed to water on even numbered dates.
When planting new trees, sod or grass, you may request an exemption permit allowing you to water every day for 30 days. Also, please be aware that building permits are required when installing new sprinkler systems. To report a violation of the watering schedule, please contact the Water Department at (763) 295-3170. Fines may be imposed for violations.
