STAGE 2 WATER ALERT

lawn-watering

Under Stage 2, there will be a voluntary 5% – 10% reduction in landscape and pasture irrigation as well as indoor water use. Customers with “smart” irrigation timers or controllers are asked to set their controllers to achieve 90% – 95% of the evapotranspiration “ET” rate. Drip irrigation systems are excluded from this requirement. Contact the District for tips to reduce indoor water use.

Please note the following restrictions:

  • Water is to be confined to the customer’s property and should not run onto adjoining properties, the roadside ditch, or gutter.
  • All hoses are required to have an automatic shut-off device attached to prevent free-flowing water when not in use.
  • Pool draining and refilling as well as washing streets, parking lots, driveways, sidewalks, or buildings is prohibited except as necessary for health, maintenance, structural, or sanitary reasons.
  • Any fountain or decorative water feature must use recirculated water.

CHWD customers are encouraged to take advantage of the District’s water conservation programs and rebates.
