DWP board may allow L.A. to water more often

LOS ANGELES

The /*L.A. City Council*/ is recommending residents get 8 minutes a day, three days a week, to water lawns.

The new rules were proposed after a series of water main breaks. A report blamed the current watering schedule for putting too much pressure on the city's aging water mains.

Under the new plan, odd-numbered addresses will be able to irrigate on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, and even-numbered addresses on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays.
