Permanent alternate-day watering restrictions: On May 17, 2022, the Bozeman City Commission adopted permanent outdoor watering restrictions for the use of overhead spray irrigation. These restrictions are in effect June 16, 2022 on a go-forward basis, every year, regardless of season. Permitted watering days:

  • EVEN number physical addresses: Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday
  • ODD number physical addresses: Wednesday, Friday, Sunday

Watering is permitted on your allowed watering day before 10 a.m. and after 8 p.m. Exceptions apply for use of low-volume drip irrigation and hand watering with a watering can or hose for the following plant types only: trees, shrubs, perennials, flowers, and food gardens. For more information visit Open spaces in Valley West and The Lakes are irrigated with well water and are not subject to these restrictions; however the HOA is conscious of water resources when irrigating our open spaces.
