As of January 1, 2014, the toilet rebate program has ended. If you have purchased new, qualifing toilets before January 1, 2014, you may still apply for the rebate. Please see the rebate page for the application.
On October 14, 2013, the City enacted 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; it's really best to turn the irrigation system off and just water manually, if needed, during the winter months.
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.
