Under that schedule:

  • '"From May 1 to September 1 watering lawns between 10 AM to 5 PM is prohibited.
  • Customers may water lawns and grass up to three days per week.
  • Wasting water, such as allowing water to run down the street, is prohibited.
  • Gardens and flowers may be watered any day before 10 AM or after 5 PM.
  • To establish new sod or seed customers must obtain a watering permit and amend soils. Visit www.cheyennebopu.org/Your-Water/Water-Conservation/New-Sod-or-Seed-Permit for the free permit.

As a reminder, washing vehicles is permitted any time, any day, as long as customers use an automatic shut-off nozzle on hoses or utilize buckets of water. Washing hard surfaces, such as sidewalks, parking lots or driveways with a hose is prohibited except when needed for safety, health or construction related reasons."

According to the release, the BOPU will continue to watch snowpack and/or reservoir levels, and changes in the watering schedule are possible if it's an unusually dry summer.
