Stage 1 Response – Mild Water Storage Watch

Under Stage 1, the District will:

  1. Achieve a 10% reduction in daily treated water demand relative to treated water demand with the water use restrictions below.

Under Stage 1, water customers will:

  1. Begin water use restrictions for reducing demand:
    1. Water customers are requested to limit the irrigation of landscaped areas to Sundays and Thursdays for water customers with a street address ending in an even number (0,2,4,6, and 8), and Saturdays and Wednesday for water customers with a street address ending in an odd number (1,3,5,7 or 9), and to irrigate landscapes only between the hours of midnight and 10:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m. to midnight on designated watering days.
    2. All operations of the District shall adhere to water use restrictions prescribed for Stage 1 of the Plan.
    3. Water customers are requested to practice water conservation and to minimize or discontinue water use for non-essential purposes.
