Cape Coral Year-Round Watering Schedule

New Citywide Watering Schedule In Effect 6/15/22

In an effort to better manage watering demand, City Council approved a new year-round two-day watering schedule on 6/15/22. The new schedule reduces the number of residents irrigating simultaneously by 40%.  The new schedule adds eight additional watering timeslots and removes Tuesday as a non-watering day. 

All residents have new days/times for watering.
The new irrigation schedule includes Tuesday (previously a non-watering day), which will improve water pressure for reclaimed water fire hydrants and the entire irrigation system. Watering days and times depend on the last number of the home address. 

See the schedule below for new days and times:

  • For addresses ending in 0:               Monday and Thursday, 8 p.m. to 11:59 p.m.
  • For addresses ending in 1:               Monday and Thursday, midnight to 4 a.m.
  • For addresses ending in 2:               Monday and Thursday, 4 a.m. to 8 a.m.
  • For addresses ending in 3:               Tuesday and Friday, 8 p.m. to 11:59 p.m.
  • For addresses ending in 4:               Tuesday and Friday, midnight to 4 a.m.
  • For addresses ending in 5:               Tuesday and Friday, 4 a.m. to 8 a.m.
  • For addresses ending in 6:               Wednesday and Saturday, 8 p.m. to 11:59 p.m.
  • For addresses ending in 7:               Wednesday and Saturday, midnight to 4 a.m.
  • For addresses ending in 8:               Wednesday and Sunday, 4 a.m. to 8 a.m.

  • Irrigation of new landscaping that has been in place for 31 to 90 days shall be allowed on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday from 2:00 a.m. to 8:00 a.m.
