Drought Emergency!!!

2013 was the driest year in recorded history for many areas of California, and current conditions suggest no change is in sight for 2015.

On July 15, 2014 the State Water Resources (State Water Board) approved an emergency regulation to ensure water agencies, customers, and state residents conserve water or face possible fines or legal actions.

The emergency regulations prohibit each of the following, except where necessary to address an immediate health or safety need or to comply with a term or condition in a permit issued by a state or federal agency:

  • The application of potable water to any driveway or sidewalk.
  • Using potable water to water outdoor landscapes in a manner that causes runoff to adjacent property, non-irrigated areas, private and public walkways, roadways, parking lots or structures.
  • Using a hose that dispenses potable water to wash a motor vehicle, unless the hose is fitted with a shut-off nozzle.
  • Using potable water in a fountain or decorative water feature, unless the water is recirculated.  Recycled water is not mandated, but encouraged for fountain use.

Remember in the City of Lomita:

  • You may only water your lawn between 8 pm and 10 am.
  • Sidewalks, driveways and other non-pervious areas may not be hosed down for cleaning.
