Level 1 Water Shortage Declaration Rescinded PDF Print E-mail

Please be advised that based on the current level of local water availability the City is rescinding its Level 1 Water Shortage declaration.  As a result, all related water use restrictions including specific days for irrigating landscaped areas are no longer in effect. 

While the Water Shortage Declaration has been rescinded, we encourage our customers to continue the use of good water conservation practices.  Additionally, we wish to remind all of our customers that Covina Municipal Code § 13.06.040 requires certain permanent water conservation measures to prohibit the waste of this precious resource. Some of those prohibitions include, but are not limited to the following:

  • No landscape irrigation between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.;
  • No watering for more than 15 minutes per irrigation station per day;
  • No excessive water flow or runoff from private property;
  • No washing down hard or paved surfaces;
  • Obligation to fix leaks, breaks and any other water system malfunctions;
  • Fountains must use re-circulating water; and
  • Washing vehicles is limited to use of bucket or handheld hose with shut-off nozzle.
