Water restrictions passed in Glendora

May 28, 2009 5:56:59 AM PDT
With the heat of summer approaching, people who live in Glendora are being told to conserve water. City officials say they had hoped voluntary guidelines would bring down the city's water use, but they say that hasn't happened.

The new regulations mirror restrictions already in effect in a number of Southern California communities. They include:

  • Glendora residents are prohibited from cleaning surfaces with running water
  • Restaurants and hotels can only serve water if customers request it
  • There should be no water use that causes runoff
  • Watering prohibited between 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. of lawns, parks, golf courses, and recreational areas
Violators could face fines ranging from $150 to $1,000, according to Public Works Director David Davies.

City officials say if Glendora's water use isn't kept in check, the city could end up paying up to $1.5 million in penalties to the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California.
