UPDATE March 9, 6:30 a.m.: Now that you've re-set your clocks, the City of Sacramento is reminding homeowners to re-set sprinkler timers, too.

The city's Spring Summer water rules are now in effect-- which means city water users can irrigate their landscapes twice a week, before 10 a.m. or after 7 p.m.

Those with addresses ending with an odd number can water on Tuesday and Saturday.  Those with addresses ending with an even number can water on Wednesday and Sunday.

Original Post- March 6: The City of Sacramento's Spring-Summer watering rules take effect Sunday.

Outdoor watering is allowed two days a week and only before 10 a.m. and after 7 p.m.

Street addresses ending with an odd number may water on Tuesday or Saturday; even addresses, Wednesday and Sunday. 

The City's Utilities Department says one reason water conservation in 2014 was successful in Sacramento was because people reduced outdoor watering.
