Water Access

There are two options to obtain water for your garden bed:  1) from the irrigation system’s connector boxes, or 2) from the rain barrel at the side of each shed.   There are watering cans, and hoses of varied length/weight in the sheds along with hose nozzles for your use.

Please top up the rain barrels, if you notice the barrel getting low and it’s in the time window when the water is on.

Please be conscious of water conservation.

Site irrigation system
There are six connector boxes in the garden which allow you to access water from the site’s irrigation lines by using one of four hose keys.  The valves on the hose keys are now on/off levers instead of turn valves.  The irrigation system has strong water pressure so please ensure no one is in the line of the discharge from the hose key.

Schedule for water availability
The system will be turned on to provide water during the following periods each day:

  • 7:00 am – 10:00 am
  • Noon  – 1:00 pm
  • 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm

Here are some instructions to connect to the site irrigation system.  Hose keys and hoses are stored in each shed.
