Temporary Outdoor Watering Restrictions

Due to the ongoing drought and widespread long-term water deficits throughout California, on July 15, 2014, Governor Brown enacted emergency regulations that require specific water conservation practices. The emergency regulations target water waste and the watering of lawns and other landscaping.
