2. Potable water may not be used to wash hardscapes such as patios, sidewalks or driveways.

 

3. It is prohibited to use any potable water on outdoor landscapes in a manner that causes runoff such that water flows onto adjacent property, non-irrigated areas, private and public walkways, roadways, parking lots, or structures.

4. Public places where food and drink are served and/or purchased and Eating and drinking establishments shall not serve drinking water to its customers unless requested.

5. All motels, hotels, bed and breakfasts, and lodging facilities shall post notices in each room informing guests of the drought and the option not to have linens and towels laundered daily.

Model Water Efficient Landscape Ordinance

All projects that will have landscaping must submit a Department of Water Resources MWELO Project Information Sheet (see right side of page for documents) for approval from the Utilities Department, prior to a construction, grading or building permit.  If you are planning a new construction project with a landscape area greater than 500 square feet or a rehabilitated project with an aggregated landscape area greater than or equal to 2,500 square feet, then you will need to further demonstrate compliance with either the Prescriptive or Performance Approach of the MWELO.
