Odd numbered addresses: Watering is only permitted on odd calendar days.

Automatically controlled underground sprinkling systems (residential and commercial):

Properties equipped with an automated time clock sprinkler system may only sprinkle between midnight and 6  a.m. on the days permitted by the sprinkling regulations as described above.
