Water Availability

PLEASE BE ADVISED that the Public Works Director has declared a Level One (I) Water Supply Shortage effective May 20, 2013.  This is due to a reduced supply of water from our primary water source, as well as ongoing drought conditions.  The Level One Shortage requires additional conservation measures.  Ongoing water conservation requirements that are already in place, include:

No automated irrigation between 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.;

No excessive water flow or runoff;

No washing down hard or paved surfaces; and

Limiting unattended irrigation to 15 minutes per station per day.

Now, the following restrictions will also apply:

Irrigation is limited to Monday, Wednesday and Saturday only (does not include hose with shut-off nozzle or buckets); and

Leaks must be repaired within 72 hours of notice from the City.   

Violations are subject to fine, penalty assessment or possible criminal prosecution.

Water Is Essential!

The City of Covina Water Utility (or your water provider) may not always be able to provide water to you in an emergency. Having an ample supply of clean water is a top priority in an emergency.
Do you have enough water available? The Red Cross recommends you store at least one gallon per person, per day (3-day supply for evacuation, 2-week supply for home). If you are unable to store this quantity, store as much as you can.
