Water Conservation

June 26, 2018

Grizzly Ranch Community,

The Grizzly Ranch CSD would like to make you aware of an existing Mandatory Water Conservation Ordinance No. 2017-1 in our District. California is imposing new or expanding requirements on state water agencies and local water suppliers. New measures will provide for significantly greater state oversight of local water suppliers’ water use, even in non-drought years. There are also new Bills, AB1668 and SB 606, which require the State Water Resources Control Board, in coordination with the Department of Water Resources, to establish long-term water use standards by June 30, 2022. Failures to comply with SWRCB’S adopted long term standards could result in significant fines for the community. The Grizzly Ranch CSD is requesting your help to establish and comply with set ordinances and standards within our community. The Spring and summer months initiate the irrigation season which provides the most water consumption in the District. This is an area where we request your full attention and assistance. Please ensure that upon start up of your irrigation system, that all leaks are addressed and that the irrigation controls comply with our set ordinance standards for the District. If you have irrigation service providers, please make them aware of our Mandatory Water Conservation Ordinance.


1.      Outdoor irrigation of ornamental landscapes or turf by persons no more than two days a week.

2.      No excessive irrigation such that would allow potable water to run off property onto sidewalks, gutters, streets, ditches, or storm drains.

3.      No landscape watering during and within 48 hours after measurable rainfall.

4.      Hose nozzles required.

5.      No washing down hard or paved surfaces.

6.      Designated watering days are Tuesdays and Fridays ONLY.

7.      No watering between 10am and 6pm.

8.      Board may further limit water usage in the event of drought worsening.

9.      Penalties could apply for violations and water waste.

The Grizzly Ranch CSD will do our best to keep the community informed by holding conservation and irrigation workshops to help with preparation and awareness. Please familiarize yourself with our website, as we will be posting upcoming workshops and tips for those who are unable to attend. Thank you very much for your understanding and cooperation in helping the Grizzly Ranch Community District with it’s conservation efforts moving forward into the future.
