Marin Watering Information

What Time of Day Should I Water?

MMWD prohibits watering between 9 a.m. and 7 p.m., except for system testing and repair. Watering between 7 p.m. and 9 a.m. takes advantage of relatively low winds and less loss of water to evaporation.

How Long Should I Water?

Generally, running an irrigation system on a lawn for more than five minutes will result in runoff. Precise watering times vary depending on the type of watering device, soil, slope and plants.
