New Lawns & Garden Exemptions: Aqwest, WA

About water exemptions

If you are establishing a new lawn, you can register with Aqwest for a temporary exemption from the watering roster. The exemption enables people to water every day of the week when they have a new lawn, rather than adhere to the two day a week watering roster. People will still be required to pay for the water they use.
