Effective Tuesday, August 28, 2018, the City of Nelson will be adhering to LEVEL 3 mandatory water conservation measures.
There is little rain in the forecast and flows in our source water creeks are rapidly declining. This means that outdoor watering with irrigation or sprinkler systems is strictly prohibited. If you have a system on a timer or schedule, please ensure you shut your system down. Watering is only permitted with a hand held container, micro/drip irrigation or hose with a shut-off nozzle during the hours of 4:00am-9:00am and 7:00pm-10:00pm daily, any day of the week.
Washing vehicles, sidewalks, the exterior of buildings, filling pools or fountains or watering of new sod is strictly prohibited.
