summeR WATERING SCHEDULE
After several years of drought, the recent rains have brought some relief to the City’s water supply. The Azusa Canyon reservoirs are approaching capacity and the State snowpack is well above average, which will provide water as the snow melts.
Although the recent rains increased the San Gabriel Basin water table, it is still extremely low due to the long term drought in California. Water conservation is very important even during wet years until we fully recover over the next few years. THANK YOU for continuing to conserve water!
The watering schedule will change to three days per week watering from April through October.
(April through October)
|Even Address||Tuesday, Thursday, Sunday|
|Odd Address||Monday, Wednesday, Saturday|
|Commercial/HOA||Monday, Wednesday, Friday|
Watering by a hand-held hose with a positive shut-off nozzle, a bucket or watering can; a rain barrel; a drip irrigation system; or reclaimed, recycled or gray wastewater may be done on any day.
All mandatory water conservation measures (Water Rule 21) will continue to be enforced, including:
• No excess runoff
• No watering between 9 AM to 6 PM
• Watering is limited to 30 minutes per location per day
• No washing down hardscape
• Vehicle handwashing only with bucket and hose with positive shutoff nozzle
• No watering during rain events or 48 hours afterwards
In order to facilitate recharge of the local groundwater basin in preparation for future water shortage periods, water users shall actively seek to limit the total water usage to an amount equal to or less than the corresponding month of the prior year.
