The primary restriction on water use on outdoor watering of lawn and ornamental landscape to two days a week has ended. However, the District suggests that a 2 day a week schedule is a wise use of water and a best practice for conservation.
Continue voluntary reduction of 10% over 2013 usage.
Continue to use water wisely. Be aware of the following restrictions:
Water waste restrictions are intended to reduce negligent waste and include runoff from your property lines, water use on hardscape surfaces, using a hose without a control nozzle, and running fountains without recirculating pumps. Violations of the District's water waste ordinance are serious and will result in a notifcation from the District. Continuous violations will result in a fine and/or termination of water service.
