Fresno residents will be able to water their lawns and landscaping three days a week during the summer starting on Thursday, thanks to a wet winter and an easing of water conservation measures.
Over the past couple of summers, dry winters and strict conservation mandates from the state prompted Fresno to limit summer outdoor watering to only two days a week. But this year, a three-day-a-week schedule has been adopted by the city’s Public Utilities Department for June, July and August, the hottest months of the year.
Residents with odd-numbered addresses can water on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays before 9 a.m. and after 6 p.m. Even-numbered addresses can water on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays during the same hours. No watering is permitted on Mondays, or between the hours of 9 a.m. and 6 p.m.
After the summer, the watering schedule will roll back to two days a week in September and October; from November through March, watering will be limited to one day a week.

Clovis residents also can water their landscaping three times a week, on the same days by address as Fresno.
