(VVNG.com) – Following Friday’s state declaration formally ending California’s drought, San Bernardino County Special Districts Department is lifting outdoor watering restrictions for County Service Area water customers, County Board of Supervisors Chairman Robert Lovingood announced.
“Our residents have done a good job conserving water,” Lovingood said. “While ending Conservation Stage 1 water restrictions is good news, we need to continue conserving water wherever we can.”
In June, 2015, the Board of Supervisors approved an ordinance implementing conservation activities for the County Service Area water districts. The ordinance set restrictions for CSA water customers on the number of days per week that outdoor irrigation can occur. Those restrictions are now being lifted.
State regulations continue to prohibit:
- Hosing off sidewalks, driveways and other hardscapes.
- Washing automobiles with hoses not equipped with a shut-off nozzle.
- Using non-recirculated water in a fountain or other decorative water feature.
- Watering lawns in a manner that causes runoff, or within 48 hours after measurable precipitation.
- Irrigating ornamental turf on public street medians.
