  • Residents must use water sparingly for personal consumption and hygiene needs
  • Using water to wash any vehicle is prohibited
  • Irrigating landscaped areas is prohibited unless reclaimed water is used.
  • Restaurants are prohibited from serving water to patrons except upon request.
  • Washing down sidewalks, walkways, driveways, parking lots or other hard surfaces is prohibited.

If residents don't comply, they could face fines of $100 or more.
