What are the conservation measures?

On June 27, 2023, the Moses Lake City Council adopted Ordinance 3029, updating the City's water conservation guidelines. Here are the main changes: No irrigating on Monday, water conservation measures are now year-round, not just limited from June – September and all irrigation is prohibited from 10 a.m.-7 p.m., year-round.  Odd address and even addresses have designated days they can water in order to space out the water demand. Odd addresses may irrigate Wednesday, Friday and Sunday. Even addresses may irrigate Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday.
