From a City of Santa Fe media release
City water managers want to remind all Santa Fe residents that water restrictions begin today, May 1. Outdoor watering is prohibited between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. and no more than three times a week.
The Santa Fe area is going into a third year of drought after the two driest and hottest years on record. In addition to limiting the time and number of days for outdoor watering, city water-use rules –Chapter 25 of the city municipal code – also address other water-wasting habits:
Those who violate the water-use rules can be fined up to $200. Violations are applied to water bills. Those who want to report water waste can call 995-4222. To report watering at city parks call 955-2100.
