The following is a list of conservation measures cities have enacted or are considering. "Restricted" means watering is not allowed during daytime hours and, in most cases, only every other day, based on odd/even dates corresponding with odd/even addresses.
There are some exceptions to the restrictions and prohibitions. For example, lawn watering is allowed if a hand-held hose with a shut-off nozzle, a bucket or drip-irrigation system is used. Fountains can be operated if its system uses recycled water and water can be served in restaurants if a customer requests it.
The Orange County Water District and Metropolitan Water District of Orange County have established a water information center. People with questions about specific restrictions and prohibitions in one or more cities or who want to learn more about water-saving practices can call the center's hot line at (800) 794-9287.
A (+) denotes the restriction is already enacted. All phone numbers are (714) area code unless noted.
