Pasadena

Watering limited to once a week

November 03, 2009|Corina Knoll

Pasadena residents are limited to just one outdoor watering day a week since the city's first-ever winter water restrictions took effect Sunday.

In the summer, sprinklers were allowed to run Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays before 9 a.m. or after 6 p.m. Now residents must choose just one of those days each week to water their lawns. The restriction does not apply to watering by hand or drip irrigation systems.

Postcards and newsletters about the change will be sent to all Pasadena residents and businesses, as well as those in Altadena who are Pasadena Water and Power customers. The department employs 19 people who report violations, which can incur a fine of up to $1,000.

The winter water restriction will end March 31.
