9-5-72 WATER RESTRICTIONS
(A) Sprinkling Systems. All sprinkler systems installed for irrigation of lawns and flowers shall be so designated and installed that the water shall not be sprayed or permitted to be sprayed over or upon a sidewalk. Portable sprinklers will not be permitted on the sidewalk, nor may they be placed in such a manner as to spray the water upon the sidewalk or so as to prevent pedestrians from using sidewalks at all times without being struck or wet by spray from the sprinklers.
(B) Sprinkling Devices Required. All consumers are hereby prohibited from using water supplied by the City by permitting water to flow out of or from any hose or substitute for said hose, for irrigating lawns or grass plots, without having attached thereto, at all times in the usual, proper and customary manner, a sprinkler, sprinkling device or spraying device. No open hoses will be allowed.
