Overview of current wise water use guidelines

Now, more than ever, it is important to use water wisely. This includes a common sense approach to watering (avoiding outdoor watering at the peak of the day's heat), not wasting water on driveways and irrigating efficiently. 


Water when?

  • No outdoor watering between noon and 6 pm.
  • Restriction doesn't apply to limited use of a hand-held bucket or hand-held hose with a self-closing water shut-off nozzle/device.
  • Restriction doesn't apply to irrigation systems where no emitter produces a spray pattern.
  • Commercial nurseries and growers are exempt from timed watering guidelines.

Water what?

  • No washing driveways or hard surfaces.
  • No watering overspray on to paved or hardscaped areas (sidewalks, drives).
  • When washing your vehicle, only use a bucket or a hose with a shut-off nozzle.

Your responsibilities:

  • If PID notifies you that you have a leak, it's your responsibility to repair it promptly.
  • If you receive a mailed notice from PID and do not make the suggested correction, 2nd and subsequent offenses will result in a $25.00 surcharge on your next water bill.
