2015 Irrigation Season Announced

April 30, 2015 (Moscow, Idaho) - Pursuant to City Code Title 5, Chapter 17, establishing an outdoor irrigation season, the Public Works Director, Les MacDonald, has consulted with appropriate staff, researched temperature and precipitation information, and determined that the 2015 Irrigation Season for the City of Moscow shall start May 1st.  Since the implementation of the Irrigation Season program by the City of Moscow, this is the earliest the season has opened.  This is a result of the abnormally dry and warm spring weather conditions experienced in 2015.

Section 17-5 of the Code states, "Outdoor irrigation shall be allowed only between the hours of 6:00 p.m. and 10:00 a.m. local time unless modified by a variance pursuant to Chapter 17.  Outdoor irrigation shall be prohibited at all times not within the declared Outdoor Irrigation Season."  During the Irrigation Season, the City encourages residents to refrain from outdoor irrigation until precipitation and soil moisture decreases to a point that landscaping needs supplemental water.

Additional irrigation information and the Water Conservation Ordinance Variance Application are located at the City of Moscow website:

Questions regarding this outdoor irrigation season or the variance should be directed to Nicole Baker, Water Conservation Program Coordinator at 208.883.7114 or Judi Davis, Engineering Administrative Assistant at 208.883.7034.
