Water Board Adopts Expanded Conservation Regulation (PDF)

The State Water Resources Control Board adopted an expanded water conservation regulation to help Californians preserve water supplies as the state enters its fourth year of drought. In addition to the mandates in the first regulation that are still in place, lawn irrigation is now prohibited during and 48 hours after rain, restaurants may only serve water on request, and hotels and motels must offer guests delayed laundering of sheets and towels.
