Permanent Water Restrictions

All Californians Need to Save

Water is precious, and there is never enough to waste. Our community worked together to save water during the last drought. Even though we currently have adequate water supply in our reservoirs now, we never know when drought may return.

These water-waste prohibitions apply to all Californians, regardless of water source. These permanent mandatory water restrictions include:

  • Irrigation with potable water of ornamental turf on public street medians;
  • Irrigation with potable water outside of newly constructed homes and buildings not in accordance with requirements established in the California Building Standards Code.
  • Using potable water to wash sidewalks and driveways;
  • Allowing runoff when irrigating with potable water;
  • Using hoses with no shutoff nozzles to wash cars;
  • Using potable water in decorative water features that do not recirculate the water;
  • Irrigating outdoors during and within 48 hours following measurable rainfall; and
  • Restaurants from serving water to their customers unless the customer requests it.
