Level 1 Water Conservation Lifted in Huntington Beach
Travis Hopkins Director of Public Works, City Of Huntington Beach, says:
The State of California recently proclaimed an end to the drought due to improved water supply conditions, increased regional storage, and low water demand. A week ago on Monday night, the City Council voted unanimously to terminate Level One of the City’s Water Management Program, which was instituted by Council action on April 6, 2009, and to return to normal operations.
Normal operations include Permanent Water Conservation Requirements that include, but are not limited to, the following water conservation measures:
· Irrigation prohibited between 9 am and 5 pm (hand watering exempt)
· Irrigation limited to no more than fifteen minutes per day, per station (drip type systems using low flow emitters are exempt)
· Excessive water flow runoff is prohibited
· Washing down hard or paved surfaces is prohibited
· Leaks, breaks and malfunctions must be corrected within seven days of notification
