As part of the City’s Drought Action Plan, effective November 1st, the City of Thousand Oaks will move to a one day per week outside watering schedule. Residents may choose any day for outside irrigation. The one day per week schedule will be in effect through March 2016.
The other Level Two water regulations are still in effect, and apply to both residents and businesses:
- Outside watering restricted to no more than 15 minutes per station
- Outdoor irrigation prohibited between 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.
- No watering during or 48 hours after any rain
- No excessive runoff
- No washing down of hard or paved surfaces
- Leaks must be fixed within 48 hours
NOTE: California American Water customers have designated watering days.
Enforcement will be focused on voluntary compliance through education first, but fines of up to $500 per occurrence will be levied on repeat offenders.
A host of water conservation information, rebates, and resources can be found at www.toaks.org/savewater. Residents in need of a hardship waiver will find an application on that page to download and fill out.
