City council lifts water use restrictions

The Paso Robles City Council on Tuesday modified the city’s water use restrictions to a “Level 1” condition in response to Governor Jerry Brown’s April 7, 2017 formal declaration of an end to the state-wide drought.

Since April of 2015, the city has directed various levels of water use restrictions mainly in response to state emergency conservation mandates.

The city’s water conservation efforts have continued to exceed the mandated conservation amounts established by the state throughout that time.

The Level 1 condition would no longer restrict landscape-watering schedules, but would retain the prohibition on water waste. Also, the city’s long-term water conservation programs, including retrofit rebate programs, will remain in effect.

The City Council will meet again for regular business on May 2, 2017.
