Mandatory Water Use Restrictions
Effective August 5, 2014, DWA has implemented Stage 2 of the Agency's water shortage contingency plan.
DWA’s drought contingency plan includes the following water use restrictions which go into effect immediately:
Washing hardscape prohibited at any time
Running water for car washing prohibited (bucket allowed, nozzle allowed for rinsing only)
Commercial nurseries may only water between midnight and 6 a.m.
Parks, golf courses, and schools may only irrigate landscapes between sunset and sunrise
Lawn watering and construction meter use may only occur between 5 p.m. and 10 a.m.
Restaurants may only provide water upon request
Exceptions to these mandates will be
made in situations where health and safety concerns exist. Recycled water users are also exempt. One such exemption is restaurants hosing off patios where customers are seated to eat. We will allow cleaning of hardscapes using pressure washers or steam cleaners to protect health and safety. We expect our customers to use water as efficiently as possible under these exemptions.
