Model Irrigation Ordinance


Version 1.0 of the model irrigation ordinance, released on October 5, 2015, provides design parameters for new landscape irrigation systems and guidelines for existing irrigation systems. The ordinance works in conjunction with established landscape codes/ordinances and can be modified to meet local needs. In addition to the model irrigation ordinance, sample reports and checklists are available below.
