City may impose water restrictions

Modified: Friday, Aug 15th, 2014

WATSONVILLE The city could impose restrictions on outdoor water usage to follow a state order.

The Watsonville City Council will consider the proposal during a public hearing on Aug. 26.

Under the proposal, all residents and business within the city's service area will be limited to watering their landscape twice a week for a maximum of 15 minutes. Addresses with odd numbers may water on Wednesdays and Saturdays, and addresses with even numbers are limited to Thursdays and Sundays.

Outdoor watering using drip irrigation or by a handheld hose with a shut-off nozzle directed at plant roots are exempt. Washing cars with a hose is exempt as well, provided the user has a shut-off nozzle.

Nancy Lockwood, environmental projects manager with the city, said the restrictions were prompted by a decision made on July 15 by the State Water Resources Control Board, which approved emergency regulations for water conservation.
