New Water Conservation Rule: Takes Effect June 16

The State Water Resources Control Board passed an Emergency Regulation last week. The SWRCB has released a FAQ on the order.  The new requirements are as follows:

  • Commercial, industrial, and institutional decorative grass should not be watered, including HOA developments
  • Give all trees just what they need: avoid overwatering
  • Follow the local requirements of your water supplier
  • Urban water suppliers should implement all Level 2 demand reduction actions by June 10, 2022
It will remain in effect for one year from the effective date unless the State Water Board acts to end, modify, or readopt it. For more resources, please check out:
