Water Conservation Tips

Help conserve Lino Lake’s freshwater resources by practicing smart watering this summer!

City lawn watering regulations allow odd numbered property addresses to water on odd numbered days and even-numbered property addresses to water on even-numbered days and only before 6am or after 6pm.

Be aware that rain sensors are required for all newly installed sprinkler systems, per state law. 

Your lawn only needs 1 inch of water per week (including rainfall) to remain healthy.

Use these tips to prevent over-watering:

1. Try scaling back to a twice-per-week schedule.

2. Minimize water lost to evaporation by using low-volume, low-angle heads. Adjust them so the water is delivered as close to the turf as possible.

3. Observe your sprinklers in action. Make sure water is not sprinkling impervious surfaces such as sidewalks, roads or driveways.

4. When installing a new irrigation system, look for water saving technology to reduce water usage and save money on your water or electric bill.

In an effort to enhance water conservation efforts in the City by helping residents conserve water (while saving money), the City of Lino Lakes will again be implementing the Smart Irrigation Controller Program in Spring of 2023.
