What are the restrictions?

The following are Stage 2 watering restrictions: - The use of potable water to irrigate outdoor landscapes during and within 48 hours of measurable rainfall is prohibited. - Operators of hotels and motels shall provide guests with the option of choosing not to have towels and linens laundered daily, and prominently display notice of such option in each guestroom. - Irrigation of landscapes with potable water outside newly constructed homes and buildings shall not be in a manner inconsistent with regulations or other requirements established by the California Building Standards Commission. Additionally, all Hesperia water customers are required to eliminate nonessential uses of water, including the following: - No water provided by the district shall be used for the purposes of washing down hard surfaces such as driveways, sidewalks, and parking lot areas, except as specifically permitted by the district for public health and safety reasons such as washing down flammable or otherwise dangerous liquids or substances. - No water shall runoff to adjacent property, non-irrigated areas, private and public walkways, roadways, parking lots or structures when watering outdoor landscape. - When washing automobiles, trucks, trailers, trailer houses or other type of mobile equipment, a shut-off hose nozzle is required. - Parks, golf courses and school grounds which use water provided by the district shall be irrigated between the hours of 11pm and 5am. Additionally, turf areas in excess of 1,000 square feet will be required to use soil moisture sensors and rain shut-off valves as part of their irrigation system. The District greatly appreciates and anticipates that each customer will comply with the use restrictions identified above so that all of the District’s customers will continue to receive safe, adequate and reliable water service. Those unwilling to reduce their water consumption may face fines for non-compliance.
