Water Conservation Information

On May 18, 2016, the California State Water Board adopted an emergency water conservation regulation to address concerning drought conditions in California. In response to these regulations, the La Habra Heights County Water District adopted Ordinance 16-01, which can be found by clicking here

The following actions are prohibited: 

- Excessive Water Flow or Runoff
- Wasting Water When Washing Vehicles
- Washing Down Driveways and Sidewalks
- Utilizing Decorative Water Features Without a Recirculating Water System
- Application of potable water to outdoor landscape during or within 48 hours after measurable rainfall
- Serving of drinking water other than upon request in eating or drinking establishments
- Irrigation with potable water of ornamental turf on public street medians
- Irrigation with potable water of landscapes outside of newly constructed homes and buildings in a manner inconsistent with regulations or other requirements established by the California Building Standards Commission and the Department of Housing and Community Development

Residents are strongly encouraged to reduce their water consumption by 20% in order to meet the City's goal of decreasing consumption levels to that of 2013.
