The City of Midland has recently updated watering restrictions. The city is now allowing residents to water any time on their respective watering days, rather than the previous 6 hour allotment in the evenings. The designated watering days for even numbered addresses are Wednesdays and Saturdays. The designated watering days for odd numbered addresses are Tuesdays and Fridays. Residents are encouraged to water either in the morning or evening to avoid evaporation during the heat of the day.
