ATTENTION HOMEOWNERS - THE CITY OF AURORA HAS DECLARED A STAGE 1 DROUGHT STATUS BEGINNING MAY 1 2023
Updated: Apr 25
During Stage 1, watering is limited to no more than two assigned days per week, with no watering permitted between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. These dates are based on the last digit of your address. Odd street addresses water on Wednesdays and Saturdays and even street addresses water on Sundays and Thursdays.
Gardens may be watered by automatic systems on any day during approved hours, and by hand at any time, but you should still do your part to use water as efficiently as possible.
If you missed the Waterwise Presentation April 21st at the clubhouse visit the city’s website at https://www.auroragov.org/residents/water/drought.
Another presentation on the Grass Replacement Incentive Program (GRIP) is scheduled for Wednesday, May 24th. Your HOA will be working with residents to comply with the new regulations while still maintaining our landscaping standards. Mowing and weed removal will still be required per usual, but if you plan to allow your lawn to go dormant during a warm month, please make the community manager aware and follow the instructions on how to manage a dormant lawn on the city’s website. Any plan to convert a traditional lawn to an approved waterwise version requires approval from the DRC. We understand these watering restrictions are not ideal but we should do all we can to conserve this valuable resource.
