-   No irrigation is permitted on Mondays.
-   Odd addresses may water on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday.
-   Even addresses may water on Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday.
-   Watering with a sprinkler or irrigation system is prohibited between the hours of 10:00 am and 6:00 pm every day.
-   Watering with a soaker hose or drip irrigation is permitted at any time or day except on Mondays. 
-   Watering with a hand-held hose or bucket can be done at any time or any day.
-   If hydro mulch, grass sod, or grass seed is installed for the purpose of establishing a new lawn, there are no watering restrictions for the first 30 days while it is being established.

Violations of this plan are enforceable in accordance with Section XI of the Plan.  These procedures include:

-   Written warning for a first violation.
-   $50 administrative penalty for second and subsequent violations.
-   Disconnection of service for a third violation with a $200 reconnection charge in addition to $50 administrative penalty.
