CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - As temperatures continue to rise, the Cheyenne Board of Public Utilities (BOPU) is reminding customers that watering lawns, gardens, and flower beds between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. is prohibited this summer in Cheyenne.

This rule and others are laid listed as part of the summer watering schedule on BOPU’s website.

From May 1 to Sept. 1, customers may water lawns up to three days per week in the mornings or evenings.

Customers are encouraged not to water during high winds or rainstorms to avoid water waste. Wasting water, such as allowing water to run down the street, is also prohibited.

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.

To establish new sod or seed, customers must obtain a watering permit and amend soils. Click here for the free permit.

BOPU employees say they are enforcing these seasonal watering restrictions. A first violation will result in a warning. A second violation may result in fines being added to the water bill. For more information or if you have questions regarding the summer watering schedule, please call 307-637-6460.
