The summer watering schedule for Cheyenne Board Of Public Utilities [BOPU] customers officially came to an end on Sunday, September 1.

That's according to a BOPU news release.

The change erases the ''no watering between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m.'' rule which had been in effect since May 1.

The daytime watering restriction is an annual event for BOPU customers intended as an effort to reduce peak demand during the hottest months of the year. While the daytime watering restrictions have ended, other water conservation rules remain in place year-round. Those include the ban on wasting water by allowing it to run down the street,

Customers can wash vehicles any time, any day, with the use of an automatic shut-off nozzle on hoses and/or buckets.  Washing hard surfaces, such as sidewalks, parking lots or driveways with a hose is prohibited except for health, safety, or construction reasons.
