State Water Board Targets Commercial Properties in New Drought Regulation
As another indication of the severity of our drought, the State Water Resources Control Board recently adopted an emergency water conservation regulation focused on commercial properties to ensure more aggressive water savings.
Owners and managers of commercial, industrial, and institutional properties are not allowed to use potable water for irrigating non-functional turf (except for circumstances identified in the regulation).
The ban does not include watering turf that is used for recreation or other community purposes, water used at residences or water to maintain trees. The regulation went into effect on June 10, 2022. For more information on the regulation, head here. And, here is a description of what qualifies as non-functional turf in Santa Clara County.
Tracking Every Drop!
Mandatory conservation is in place. Every drop saved makes a difference.
