City of Madera:

September 11, 2017

Water schedule now permits watering 3 days a week in Madera

Sprinkler waters grass

Effective September 6, 2017, Level B Water Use Regulations will be implemented for all City of Madera residents. As a result, watering days will increase from two days per week to three.

Level B Water Schedule:

  • All outside WATER USE is prohibited every day between 10:00 A.M. and 7:00 P.M.
  • All outside WATER USE is prohibited on Mondays
  • Odd-numbered addresses can water on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday
  • Even-numbered addresses can water on Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday

The City of Madera would like to remind residents that landscape irrigation consumes over half of the water used around most homes. Many people tend to water too often and leave the sprinklers on for too long. Though the City is moving to a watering schedule where increased watering days are available, it is important that residents continue to conserve where they can and use only as much water as necessary.

Please see the water conservation resources on the City’s website for more information.

Additionally, the City continues to offer rebates for timers, turf replacement and other water saving devices; more information is available on the city’s website at To inquire about water regulations or report abuses, residents can contact the City’s Water Conservation Supervisor by using the contact form available on our website at, or by calling (559) 661-5466 on weekdays from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.
