Questions and Answers

LOCAL REGULATIONS

Are there watering restrictions in Durham, NC?


Odd-Even Watering Schedule The City of Durham has adopted requirements to help make our community a more sustainable place to live. These watering requirements are consistent with irrigation schedules in most of our neighboring communities. Landscape irrigation makes up a large portion of our consumption, particularly during the warmer months of the year. In fact, irrigation during summer months can increase demand on the treatment plants between 20% - 40%. By improving the efficiency of our irrigation practices, we can reduce consumption, save money, and preserve this precious resource. Schedule The mandatory outdoor irrigation schedule applies to all spray irrigation systems and allows customers to irrigate according to the following schedule: Odd-numbered addresses may water once on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays either before 10 a.m. or after 6 p.m. Even-numbered addresses may water once on Sundays, Wednesdays, and Fridays either before 10 a.m. or after 6 p.m. No watering may occur between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. on allowed watering days. No customers are permitted to water on Mondays.

LOCAL REGULATIONS

Does Durham, NC have long / overgrown grass ordinances?


“Weeds and undergrowth over 12 inches tall provide a harborage for rodents, vermin, mosquitoes and other pests,” she said. “This increases the hazards of disease, injury or fire as well as creates hazards to the health, safety and welfare of your yard and your neighborhood.”
