Printer-friendly version

The California State Water Resources Control Board www.swrcb.ca.gov/ has implemented an emergency water conservation regulation.  The information that we have received is available for you to review at the links below.

The regulation prohibits the following:

  • The direct application of potable water to driveways and sidewalks
  • Watering of outdoor landscapes that cause runoff to adjacent property, non-irrigated areas, private and public walkways, roadways, parking lots and structures
  • Using a hose to wash a motor vehicle, unless the hose is fitted with a shut-off nozzle
  • Using potable water in a fountain or decorative water feature, unless the water is recirculated.

Please be aware of your water use habits, and where you are able, reduce the amount of water you use!
