Please Follow Water Use Best Practices All Year Round
CVWD always encourages wise water use and recommends using water wisely by following the best practices below:
No hosing of paved surfaces such as driveways, streets, and sidewalks
Use a shutoff nozzle on all hoses
If decorative fountains are in use, they must have a recirculating water system
Fix leaks and broken sprinklers immediately
Ensure there is no sprinkler overspray or runoff
No watering within 48 hours after it rains
Restaurants only serve water to customers upon request
Hotels offer guests the option of not having linens laundered daily
Saving water can be simple with the most significant water-saving opportunities on your landscaping. Customers should focus their attention on continuing to use Best Management Practices and by changing outdoor watering habits, including reducing outdoor watering by a few minutes and fixing leaks or misaligned sprinklers immediately.
