5/1/2017 - Mandatory 2-Day Irrigation Rules Now In Effect

For Darien, Greenwich, New Canaan and Stamford Customers

As we begin the season with regional reservoir levels below last year’s, Aquarion and local town authorities are protecting water supplies in your town by restricting sprinkler irrigation to a maximum of two days a week. Residents with addresses ending in even numbers may water on Sundays and Wednesdays before 10:00 a.m. and after 6:00 p.m. Odd numbered addresses may water on Saturdays and Tuesdays during the same time periods.

This applies to both in-ground irrigation systems and above-ground sprinklers. Drip irrigation, soaker hoses and hand-held watering are allowed at any time.

The good news: Plants and lawns can live on twice-weekly watering. Additional information from UCONN and the EPA for maintaining healthy lawns and gardens without frequent watering can be found below.

Questions? Call our Customer Service Center at 1-800-732-9678 during regular business hours (Monday through Friday, 8:00 am to 5:30 pm).

And thanks for everything you’re doing to save water – and help ensure that your community has enough for its most critical needs.
