Mandatory Water Measures are now in effect in the Desert!

saving water

According to an article on the Desert Sun the DWA’s mandatory measures are:

  • Washing hard surfaces like driveways, parking lots and building exteriors is prohibited at all times.
  • Golf courses, parks and schools can water only between sunset and sunrise.
  • Lawn watering and landscape irrigation is prohibited between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m.
  • Running water for car washes is prohibited. Buckets are allowed and nozzles allowed only for rinsing.
  • Restaurants can only provide water upon request.
  • Commercial nurseries can only water between midnight and 6 a.m.
DWA would fine violators following a written notice for a 1st offense. A 2nd violation would lead to a fine equal to 25 percent of the customer's previous water bill. A 3rd offense would lead to a fine equal to 50 percent of the previous bill. We’re all in this together! One way to help save water is to install water conserving appliances and plumbing. That’s where I can help!   Give me a call to help you make your home more water conserving and energy efficient.
