New lawn-watering times in effect for L.A.

LOS ANGELES Homes with odd numbered addresses will be able to water on Wednesday, as well as Mondays and Fridays.

The hours are before 9 a.m. or after 4 p.m.

Those with even numbered addresses will be able to turn on their sprinklers Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays during the same times.

The changes were called for after engineering experts blamed last year's rash of water main breaks on the Department of Water and Power's strict, weekly two-day watering program.
