In Pasadena, the following instances of water waste are prohibited:

  • Outdoor watering is limited to Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday in the spring/summer (April 1- October 31); and is restricted to one day a week on Saturday in the fall/winter (November 1 – March 31), and must be done before 9 a.m and after 6 p.m.
  • All property owners must fix leaks, breaks, or other sprinkler system malfunctions when they find them, or within 72 hours of receiving a notice from PWP.


These restrictions do not apply to the exemptions outlined in the Pasadena Municipal Code, which include:

  • Landscape irrigation zones that exclusively use low flow drip type irrigation systems where no emitter produces more than 2 gallons of water per hour;
  • Watering or irrigating by use of a hand-held bucket or similar container, or a hand-held hose equipped with a water shut-off nozzle or device;
  • Watering for very short periods of time for the express purpose of adjusting or repairing an irrigation system;
  • Maintenance of trees as necessary to sustain their health and viability;
  • Maintenance of vegetation, including fruit trees and shrubs, intended for consumption;
  • Maintenance of landscape for fire protection
