While the drought may be over, it is still important to use the water we have wisely and efficiently.  In 2016 the following water use prohibitions became permanent:

  • Do not irrigate landscaping within 48 hours after measurable rainfall.
  • Do not irrigate with potable water between 8:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m.
  • Washing of vehicles, trailers, boats, etc., must be done with a shutoff nozzle.
  • Do not wash paved or hardscape surfaces.
  • Fountains must recirculate water.
  • New construction landscaping must be irrigated by drip and/or micro-spray systems.
  • Public street medians with ornamental turf may not be irrigated with potable water.
  • Drinking water will be served at restaurants only upon request.
  • Daily linen laundering is optional for hotel guests.

Additionally, as a condition of service customers of the City must use water delivered through the city's system in a manner that promotes efficiency and avoids waste.  See Brentwood Municipal Code 14.01.510.
