La Palma Water Conservation


Water conservation is the practice of using water efficiently to reduce unnecessary water usage. Conservation of this natural resource is critical for the environment — and our wallets. 

Recently, California Gov. Gavin Newsom signed an executive order encouraging all Californians to reduce water use by 15% as 50 of the state's 58 counties are now in a drought-related state of emergency, which does not yet include Orange County. However, La Palma is in a Stage 1 Water Watch, which means customers may water outdoor landscaping up to three days per week within the schedule below.

Other Water Restrictions In Effect:

  • Irrigation is limited to no more than 15 minutes per day, per station.
  • Excessive water runoff is prohibited.
  • Washing down of hard surfaces is prohibited.
  • Washing of vehicles must be with a hand held bucket or hose equipped with an auto shut-off nozzle.
  • Water fountains or other decorative water features must have recirculating systems.
  • Restaurants to serve drinking water only upon request.
  • Restaurants required to use water conserving dish wash spray valves.
  • Commercial lodging establishments must offer the option to decline daily linen service.
  • Washing of vehicles and filling/refilling of pools are only allowed on the designated schedule. 
  • Irrigation is prohibited between the 9 a.m. and 6 p.m.
