Rules for outdoor water use


The water supply for Cherry Creek Village Water District comes from Denver Water, therefore it is requested that our customers follow the watering guidelines from Denver Water.

Voluntary (Stage 1) watering restrictions mean that Cherry Creek Village Water District customers may water no more than three times per week. Denver Water and in turn, the District, is asking its customers to reduce outdoor watering and follow the standard annual watering rules:

  • Water no more than three days per week (there are no assigned days).
  • Do not water lawns between 10 a.m. and 6:00 p.m.
  • Do not waste water by allowing it to pool in gutters, streets and alleys.
  • Do not waste water by letting it spray on concrete and asphalt.
  • Repair leaking sprinkler systems within 10 days.
  • Do not water while it is raining or during high winds.

Please review the 2020 Denver Summer Water Mailer.

Please pay close attention to the weather and your landscape, and only water when necessary. Other tips:

  • Use a day of rain to skip watering.
  • Only water the areas of your yard that are dry. For example, if shady areas look fine, only water the dry areas that get the most sun exposure.

Customers with new plants, including seed, sod, annuals, shrubs or trees, may apply to the District for permission to water as necessary for up to 21 days. Call 303-381-4960. After 21 days, regular watering rules apply.

Both the Denver Water website and This Website will continue to provide up to the date information on these issues.

Adjust watering times at least once per month.

Get to know your timer. Adjust your automatic controller or manual watering times each month based on weather conditions. Use this chart as a starting point to determine the number of minutes to water each zone on the days you water. These times are averages. Adjust your watering minutes based on rainfall, type of grass or plants, sunny or shady locations and other characteristics.

Program your controller or timer to water in cycles to allow water to soak into the ground. Watering two days a week should be sufficient during most of the summer. If needed, water a third day during extreme heat or dry periods. Water trees and shrubs as needed, but not between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. Shrubs and perennials need half as much water as lawns.

There are no assigned watering days, but never water a zone more than three days a week.
