A reminder from Colorado Springs Utilities that lawn and gardening water restrictions are now in effect.
As of May 1 customers cannot run sprinklers or water your lawn more than three days a week. You can choose which days to water, but it's best to spread it out.
Also under the Water-wise Rules, you can only run sprinklers before 10 a.m. and after 6 p.m.
Those restrictions remain in place through October 1.
