What does a Stage 2 Water Shortage mean for customers?

Under a Stage 2 Water Shortage event, customers are required to meet a 10% water conservation goal. Additionally, customers must adhere to the City’s Water Waste Ordinance per the following guidelines:

  • Do not allow water to run and be wasted during outdoor use
  • Do not allow leaks to persist for more than 48 hours
  • Do not use a handheld hose without an automatic shutoff nozzle
  • Do not operate fountains unless the water is recirculating
  • Do not wash or hose down hardscape surfaces such as driveways and sidewalks
  • Do not irrigate outdoor landscapes during and within 48 hours of measurable rainfall
