Governor Issues Water Restrictions – What You Can Do to Save Water

California Governor Jerry Brown, on April 1, 2015, ordered mandatory water use reductions for the first time in California’s history, stating the state’s four-year drought has now reached near-crisis proportions after a winter of record-low snowfalls.

Executive Order B-29-15, places significant restrictions on water usage and set water use reductions goals. As a result of the Governor’s order, City staff have been receiving inquiries about requirements associated with alternative landscaping such as the installation of artificial turf and xeriscaping.
