According to KTLA, LADWP issued new watering restrictions starting Wednesday! LA Residents can only water their lawn 2 days a week beginning on Wednesday!
Customers with street addresses ending in odd numbers may water only on Mondays and Fridays, and customers with even numbered street addresses may water on Thursdays and Sundays. And all outdoor watering is prohibited from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Watering with sprinklers is limited to one cycle of up to 8 minutes per watering day for typical, non-conserving residential nozzle sprinkler systems, or two 15-minute cycles per watering day for conserving nozzle sprinkler systems. However, hand watering with a self-closing shut-off nozzle on the hose is allowed any day of the week before 9 a.m. or after 4 p.m. City officials also require that all leaks are repaired in a timely manner and there is no runoff onto streets, driveways and gutters. Residents also shouldn’t be watering sidewalks, walkways, driveways or parking areas, LADWP officials said.
The new watering restrictions will be strictly enforced, and according to LADWP violations may result in fines that range from $200 to $1,200.
