PICK UP A FREE NOZZLE FROM BWP
If you're hand-watering trees and plants in your garden, you should use an adjustable garden hose nozzle. It makes watering tasks more convenient and efficient, plus you'll save water. You can get a free adjustable nozzle from the Conservation counter in the BWP lobby at 164 W. Magnolia Blvd, Burbank, CA 91502. The lobby is open Monday through Friday, from 8 am to 5 pm.

FOLLOW THE WATERING SCHEDULE
Burbank's outdoor watering schedule is designed for deep watering landscapes. This allows the roots to grow deep and allow plants to be more resilient in dry spells.
In April, Burbank will be switching back to 2 days/week, on Tuesdays and Saturdays. Outdoor watering is allowed before 9 am or after 6 pm, up to 15 minutes per irrigation station. Attended hand watering is allowed any day, before 9 am or after 6 pm.
