As a result of recent dramatic rainfall, Golden State Water service areas have moved from Stage 2 to Stage 1 of their Water Shortage Contingency and Staged Mandatory Water Conservation and Rationing Plan (effective May 14, 2023).
In Stage 1, customers are allowed to water outdoors three days a week.
Although no longer in Stage 2, given that water conditions will continue to evolve, customers are encouraged to voluntarily reduce water usage and to use water wisely, only using what is needed and not one drop more. Golden State Water may additionally charge customers who exceed their baseline drought allocation.
1. In Stage One, outdoor irrigation/watering is limited to (3) days/week.
2. Outdoor irrigation/watering is prohibited between the hours of 9:00 AM and 5:00 PM.
3. Outdoor irrigation/watering is limited to eight (8) minutes per controller station/valve.

Commercial, industrial, and institutional water customers must also adhere to updated State restrictions prohibiting watering non-functional turf, unless the user certifies that the non-functional turf is a low water use plant with a plant factor of 0.3 or less and demonstrates the actual use is less than 40% of reference evapotranspiration.
