As debris, grime, and dirt get onto our parking lots and driveways, one good way to prevent these pollutants from getting into the storm drain system is to sweep it up and discard it into the garbage can. If we can each do our part, this will help prevent the pollutants by not clogging up our storm drain pipes and will keep our waterways cleaner and our parking lots and driveways looking more appealing.
We appreciate all who are observing the watering restrictions, and we continue to enforce those restrictions until the season ends on September 20, 2021. The violation penalties are as follows:
• A person who is found to be wasting water for the first time during a calendar year shall be issued a written door hanger warning.
• A person who has previously had a warning issued against their property during a calendar year and who is found to be wasting water a second time may be issued a civil citation requiring them to pay $200.
• A person who has previously had a citation issued against their property during a calendar year and who is found to be wasting water may be issued a final citation of $500.
•A property for which two citations have been issued during a calendar year and on which a person is found to be wasting water shall have secondary water service terminated for the remainder of the calendar year, pay $1000, and have a meter installed.
