Water Conservation Recommendations Due to Prolonged Drought

Due to the ongoing drought conditions in Central Iowa, Des Moines Water Works and the City of Clive are encouraging residents and businesses to be good water stewards when irrigating grass. 

Watering your grass is not recommended during the hottest part of the day, between 10:00 am and 5:00 pm.

Watering is not recommended on Mondays for any property. Properties with even-numbered addresses (Ex: 5018) are encouraged to irrigate if needed on Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays.  Properties with odd-numbered addresses (Ex: 5019) are encouraged to irrigate if needed on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays.
