Gardeners, please be advised that the new watering regulations also apply to our garden:
Residents are prohibited from watering their lawns between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m., and watering is limited to 15 minutes a day.
Residents are also prohibited from using a hose to wash off paved surfaces and must use a hose equipped with an automatic shut-off nozzle when washing their cars.
Residential DWP customers who violate the rules will be fined $100, which is double the old fine of $50 for a first-time offense. The fine for businesses that violate the rules quadrupled to $200.
Repeat residential offenders can be fined up to $300 and commercial customers up to $600.
