8/1/2021 - Smarter Watering Begins With You

People across the world are putting water high on the list of things to use more efficiently, especially given the large fluctuations in the amount of rain and snow we receive. Plus, of course, the finite nature of the water supply and the essential role it plays in human, economic and environmental well-being.

In the communities shown below, residents are saving millions of gallons of water each year by following a mandatory schedule for sprinkler irrigation.

NOTE: This schedule is Voluntary for Fairfield customers in 2021 and will become Mandatory in 2022.

Customers in Darien, East Granby, Granby, Greenwich, New Canaan, Newtown, Simsbury, Stamford and Westport should follow the twice-weekly irrigation schedule from April 1 through October 31.

Drip irrigation, soaker hoses, and hand-held watering are allowed at any time. Some residential and commercial customers may qualify for a variance from the schedule.
