The Brea City Council water conservation ordinance became effective on July 16, 2009. Efforts to conserve remain important in order to protect supplies. Wasteful practices are always prohibited under statewide restrictions that have been made permanent.
Outdoor automated irrigation is limited to only three days per week: Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays from April through October. Beginning November 1 through March 31, the watering schedule changes to once a week, which is Monday.
o Watering may never occur between the hours of 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.
o Sprinklers may never run for longer than 15 minutes per cycle.
o Runoff cannot be allowed to flow onto paved surfaces or into the storm drains.
Replace Turf, Request Rebate & Save
Landscaping options just keep multiplying for good looks as well as lower maintenance and big water savings. If you are considering making a switch, be sure to investigate current rebate incentives through the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California. The City of Brea participates with the current program, so you may be eligible. You will want to take action to install planned improvements before funding is diminished.
