New Water Conservation Measures are in effect as of June 1, 2023. California American Water has moved is back to a three-days-per-week watering schedule for outdoor landscaping, after winter storms helped ease state water shortage conditions. This comes after Governor Newsom lifted emergency water restrictions for the area recently; those restrictions had been in effect since June 1, 2022.
Beginning June 1, 2023, California American Water is encouraging San Diego District customers to follow the below recommended watering schedule.
- Odd Address (Addresses ending in 1, 3, 5, 7, 9): Tuesday, Friday, and Sunday
- Even Address (Addresses ending in 2, 4, 6, 8, 0): Monday, Thursday, and Saturday
- No watering on Wednesday
- To avoid evaporation, we recommend customers water outdoors before 9:00 a.m. or after sunset.
- Watering should be limited to a total of 10-minutes per station per allowed days.
- Hand watering with a garden hose/nozzle and low-flow irrigation systems (Including drip irrigation and micro spray) that emit less than two gallons per hour are exempt from days of week and time limitations.
Customers should check their city’s watering schedule, as some cities may have implemented more restrictive measures. We encourage customers to follow their city’s conservation guidelines if more restrictive.
