Prohibitions for all urban water users in California:
· The application of potable water to any driveway or sidewalk
· Using potable water to water outdoor landscapes in a manner that causes runoff to adjacent property, non-irrigated areas, private and public walkways, roadways, parking lots or structures
· Using a hose that dispenses potable water to wash a motor vehicle, unless the hose is fitted with a shut-off nozzle

Requirements for urban water suppliers:
The State emergency conservation regulation has also imposed requirements on urban water suppliers such as the City of Vallejo. To fulfill those requirements, the City Council will be considering activating water conservation measures drawn from the City’s Water Shortage Contingency Plan at its next meeting on August 26, 2014.
The measures may include:
· Restriction of outdoor irrigation to no more than three days per week
· Limiting outdoor irrigation to between the hours of 6:00 p.m. and 9:00 a.m. on days when outdoor irrigation is allowed
· Water conservation hotline services
