SNWA SUMMER WATERING SCHEDULE 2018

Summer watering schedule will take effect May 1, 2018

Summer is almost here, and with it comes a reminder from the Southern Nevada Water Authority (SNWA) that mandatory seasonal watering restrictions will be in effect May 1 through August 31.

The seasonal restrictions prohibit landscape irrigation between the hours of 11 a.m. and 7 p.m. during the summer months, when water often is lost to evaporation from the heat and high winds. Watering during restricted hours is considered water waste and may result in a water waste fee or citation. 

While watering is permitted Monday through Saturday (Sunday watering is prohibited year-round), the SNWA recommends limiting your landscape irrigation to four days per week, and increasing the schedule only if your lawn shows signs that it needs more water.

The SNWA also recommends using the cycle-and-soak sprinkler method—three times a day for four minutes each cycle with one-hour intervals. This allows the soil to absorb the water in between each cycle and reduces the risk of runoff and water waste.

Springs Preserve welcomes summer with ice cream, beer, and blues

The Springs Preserve is gearing up for the lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer with a pair of special events that will get you in the mood for the coming season.

Ice Cream Festival
Sweet treats and yummy eats will be on the menu at the 11th annual Ice Cream Festival, Saturday, May 12, from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. The family-friendly event will feature all-you-can-eat ice cream cones, sundaes, novelties and floats, while the little ones can learn the science behind making ice cream—and about the edible parts of a cactus—at the Kids Cactus Ice Cream lesson. Games and crafts for the entire family, carnival games, and an ice cream eating contest round out the event.

Brews & Blues Festival
For grown-ups ages 21 and over, ice-cold beers and red-hot blues will be on tap at the ninth annual Brews & Blues Festival, Saturday, May 19, from 4-8 p.m. Beers from international, domestic, and regional brewers will pair with live music from local and regional blues acts; a portion of ticket sales benefits Keep Memory Alive, which supports the mission of the Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health in downtown Las Vegas.

SNWA - Fall Watering Restrictions

Mandatory fall watering restrictions now in effect

 

Now that cooler autumn temperatures are on their way to Southern Nevada, mandatory fall seasonal watering restrictions are in effect through October 31. The restrictions limit both turf and drip irrigation to three specific days per week, based on each customer’s assigned watering group.

 

Watering days for residents and businesses in watering groups A, C and E are Monday, Wednesday and Friday; those in groups B, D and F may water on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. Sprinkler watering is prohibited on Sunday. In addition, sprinkler watering other than on those days assigned to your group is considered water waste, which may result in a water-waste fee.

 

For a free landscape-watering schedule or to find your watering group, call the Southern Nevada Water Authority’s Conservation Helpline at 702-258-SAVE or log on to snwa.com.

 

 

Springs Preserve gears up for fall special events

 

The Springs Preserve is gearing up for a full slate of special events this fall, starting with the adults-only Grapes & Hops Festival and the family-friendly Haunted Harvest, leading up to the colorful and popular Día de Muertos celebration.

 

Slated for Saturday, September 30, from 5-9 p.m., Grapes & Hops offers up samples of fine wines, unique craft beers, and food from some of Las Vegas’ finest restaurants—with proceeds benefiting Par for the Cure, a non-profit organization dedicated to raising funds for breast cancer research.

Meanwhile, spooktacular fun for all ages awaits those who dare enter the Springs Preserve's annual Haunted Harvest. The family-friendly event features trick or treat stations, carnival games and circus activities, a petting zoo, crafts, live entertainment, and much more fun.
