California Adopts Water Restrictions

According to the new California water mandates, restrictions will include:

  • No watering lawns for two days after rain

  • No using drinking water to clean sidewalks and driveways

  • No sprinkler runoff onto sidewalks

  • No car washing unless the hose has a nozzle that automatically stops water flow when not in use

  • No outdoor watering that causes runoff into the street (an exception is tree watering)

The action comes as Californians continue to fall short on Gov. Gavin Newsom’s call for a voluntary 15% reduction in water use compared to last year. Between July and November, the state’s water usage went down just 6%.
