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%.
