Prohibited Water Uses

In June of 2016 the CCWD Board of Directors Modified its List of Prohibited Water Uses


The list is below: 

  • failing to repair a leak in the customer’s water system;

  • permitting excessive water run-off from the customer’s premises;

  • watering outdoor landscapes in a manner that causes excessive runoff such that water flows onto adjacent property, non-irrigated areas, private and public walkways, roadways, parking lots, or structures;

  • watering of outdoor landscapes during and up to 48 hours after measurable rainfall; 

  • watering outdoor landscapes between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.;

  • using of a hose to wash a motor vehicle, except where the hose is fitted with a shut-off nozzle or device attached to it that causes it to cease dispensing water when not in use;

  • washing driveways, sidewalks, parking areas, patios or other outdoor area, unless the failure to do so would create a hazard to the health and safety of any individual or the public; 

  • using potable water for non-recirculating fountains or other non-recirculating decorative water features; 
     
  • irrigating ornamental turf in public street medians with potable water;

  • irrigating landscapes outside of newly constructed homes and buildings in a manner inconsistent with regulations or other requirements established by the California Building Standards Commission and the Department of Housing and Community Development;

  • or otherwise failing to put water received from the District to reasonable and beneficial use.
Fines:  To enforce the prohibitions, CCWD is keeping in place the established fines:

  • Customers violating water-use prohibitions first receive a warning.
  •  A second violation may result in a $250 fine. 
  •  A third violation may result in a $500 fine. 
  • Further violations may result in suspension of service. 
  • In addition to the fines, a penalty may be charged for the estimated water used in violation of the prohibition.
