Water Use Restrictions – Update

June 6, 2016 the City of Healdsburg City Council rescinded Stage 2 mandatory water conservation in Healdsburg. This is primarily due to above average rainfall received this winter. Similarly the State has rolled back their mandatory requirements but will continue to enforce items such as those listed below. This is just a subset of relevant items.

Current Water Restrictions

• Application of potable water to outdoor landscapes during and within 48 hours after measureable rainfall is prohibited

• Allowing runoff when irrigating with potable water is prohibited

• Washing of sidewalks, walkways, driveways and other hard surfaced areas is prohibited

• Washing a motor vehicle without a hose fitted with an automatic shut-off is prohibited

• Use of potable water in a fountain or other decorative water feature except where the water is part of a recycling system is prohibited

The City’s water department says they hope water conservation continues to be a way of life and best practice for the management of homeowner properties as well as HOA green/common spaces. Use what’s needed but don’t over water or allow run-off.

In addition, the City recommends as a best practice:

  • Do not apply outdoor irrigation water any day between the hours of 7 am and 8 pm.
