Current News As of October 14, 2013, the City is enacting Stage I of our Drought Contingency Plan. This is a no more than twice-weekly watering schedule. IF you are going to water your property, you must adhere to one, or both, of your watering days. No irrigation is allowed between 10am - 7pm. Hand-watering is permitted on any day. See the main Water page for the watering schedule. Please note, that you DO NOT HAVE TO water your yard, this is if you are choosing to. With the cooler temperatures and nice rainfall, twice a week watering is really too much; once per week would be more than adequate.
Water waste is prohibited year-round. Water waste is defined as broken or leaking sprinkler heads, overspray into the street or parking are, water running off the property, water ponding in the street or parking area, broken pipes, leaking faucets, misting irrrigation, or other controllable leak.
Waste water averaging is starting with the November water billing period and lasts through the February billing cycle. It's important to reduce your water use--turn off irrigation systems--during this time to lower your waste water average, and waste water costs year-round!
