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
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.
