The Water Conservation Division implements the city’s water management program. We offer water efficiency services, programs, and information to the city’s water customers, including water-wise house calls, commercial water audits, large landscape water audits, rebate programs, community presentations, and water waste enforcement. We also provide public outreach and education services related to drought conditions and long-term water conservation strategies.


Current Water Restrictions

The following mandatory restrictions for all Californians are still in place and prohibit:

  • Using potable water to wash sidewalks and driveways, except for health or safety reasons.
  • Allowing runoff when watering with potable water.
  • Using hoses with no shutoff nozzles to wash cars.
  • Using potable water in decorative water features that do not recirculate the water.
  • Watering outdoors during and within 48 hours following measurable rainfall.
  • Using potable water to irrigate non-functional turf at commercial, industrial, and institutional sites. Potable water is not prohibited to the extent necessary to ensure the health of trees and other perennial non-turf plantings or for health and safety needs.
