City of Newport Beach, CA Water Conservation

Newport Beach Water Conservation | Dealing with the Drought in Newport Beach, CA

In 2009  the Newport Beach City Council adopted permanent water conservation requirements. 

The water conservation requirement is that Newport Beach residents and business owners are required to stop using  water to wash cars with a hose unless there is a shut off nozzle; wash down sidewalks and driveways; operate a water feature, unless the water is part of a recirculating system; and water outdoor yards and landscaping that can cause excessive runoff. Also, repair any leaks, as this just wastes water. Also, leaks can also create significant damage to your property.

Also, this water conversation requirement has a two level watering schedule. You can look up your area on this map for your watering schedule.

As of September, 2014 lawns and landscaping can only be irrigated a maximum of four days per week from April through October and two days per week  from November through March. Also, Each customer’s water use should not  exceed 100% of the “base amount.” Click on the link to determine your base amount. Contact the city of Newport Beach for more information.

All information taken from City of Newport Beach website.

We all need to do our part to conserve water.

1. Consider drought resistant landscaping and plants for your yard or pots.

2. Turn off the water when brushing your teeth.

3. Repair any water leaks in your property - this is now a requirement that they be repaired within 72 hours.

4. When you do laundry or run the dishwasher - make sure you a full load.

5. Adhere the City of Newport Beach watering schedule.

6. Do not wash down your drive way or other patio using a hose.

Just remember to think about your water usage and do your best to conserve.
