SB County Ends Outdoor Watering Restrictions for County Service Area Customers

SAN BERNARDINO – San Bernardino County 1st District Supervisor Lovingood offered a welcomed announcement on Thursday afternoon. Lovingood said that as a result of the state declaration ending the California drought, the water restrictions in the County of San Bernardino Service Area Customers will be lifted on outdoor watering.  

“Our residents have done a good job conserving water,” Lovingood said. “While ending Conservation Stage 1 water restrictions is good news, we need to continue conserving water wherever we can.” The ordinance implementing conservation activities in the area, which affects the unincorporated areas of San Bernardino County began in June of 2015. These restrictions were set for CSA water customers, limiting them to certain days where outdoor watering could take place.

The State of California still continues to prohibit hosing off sidewalks, driveways, or other hardscapes. This also includes washing automobiles without a shut off nozzle, using a non-recirculating water fountain or other decorative feature, watering laws in a manner that causes runoff or within 48 hours of measurable precipitation, and irrigating ornamental turf on public street medians.
