With the arrival of hot weather, the Cheyenne Board of Public Utilities [BOPU] is reminding  Cheyenne residents about the rules for summer watering schedule.

That's according to a post on the agency's  Facebook page.

The rules are as follows:

April 1 to November 30 watering lawns, trees, and gardens between 10 AM to 6 PM is prohibited.
💧Customers may water lawns up to three days per week, April 1 to November 30.
💧Customers may water trees and gardens as needed in accordance with the above schedule.
💧Wasting water, such as watering during high winds, rainstorms, and/or allowing water to run down the street is prohibited.
💧To establish new sod or seed, customers must obtain a watering permit and amend soils.
💧Water schedule waivers are available.

Hot Weather In The Forecast Today And Tommorrow

According to the Cheyenne Office of the National Weather Service, temperatures today and Friday ae expected to hit the mid to uppper 80s before cooler, wetter weather this weekend.
The BOPU post says the purpose for the summer watering restrictions is to prepare residents for possible future shortages due to curtailment of use of water from the Colorado River.
The other goal is to acheive a low water landscape in Cheyenne.
