Watering Schedules

In accordance with Cal Water’s Water Shortage Contingency Plan (Schedule 14.1, the “Plan”), Cal Water will enforce the outdoor irrigation schedules for each district below. The Plan also implements water waste penalties for customers when these water-use restrictions, which are necessary to meet Governor Jerry Brown’s executive order to reduce urban water use during this historic drought, are found to be violated. Exemptions from these watering restrictions include:

  • Hand-watering,
  • Drip irrigation, and
  • Microspray irrigation on lawns, landscaping, and trees.

Violation of any of these water-use restrictions may be subject to enforcement measures, including a fine of up to $50 for each day the violation occurs, installation of flow restrictors, or discontinuance of water service. Waste of water in Cal Water service areas can be reported using the Report Water Waste form.

Our goal throughout this drought is to help our customers conserve. Cal Water has a range of residential and commercial programs available to help our customers reduce their water use.
