Starting today, Monday December 1 2014, South Coast Water District customers will be required to limit watering days (using potable water sprinkler systems) to no more than one day per week.
South Coast Water District services Dana Point, South Laguna and areas of San Clemente and San Juan Capistrano.
The change in watering requirements, effective December 1, 2014, under Ordinance 206, Level 1 Water Alert, was voted on by the South Coast Water District Board of Directors at the Regular Board Meeting on November 13.
The District’s potable water usage as a whole is not meeting the water conservation goal of a 20% reduction from calendar year 2013 to calendar year 2014.
As the drought continues, water reservoirs statewide have reached critically low levels, making water conservation an important priority for all Californians.
New Potable Water Landscape Irrigation Schedule Effective December 1, 2014
Residential customers: Monday only
Businesses, Government, Schools, HOAs: Wednesday only
Water only between the hours of 5 p.m. and 9 a.m.
Limit watering to 10 minutes per sprinkler station/zone, with no run-off (water flowing from landscape onto paved areas or a neighbor’s property)
