Vista Irrigation District to Implement More Stringent Water Use Restrictions (May 28, 2015)

The Vista Irrigation District board of directors amended its Water Supply Response Program and will implement more stringent mandatory water conservation measures effective June 6, 2015.

The board of directors’ action is consistent with the State Water Resources Control Board’s (State Board) emergency conservation regulations which require urban water suppliers to implement water conservation measures aimed at reducing potable water use by 25% statewide as well as the San Diego County Water Authority’s requirement that its member agencies, including the Vista Irrigation District, limit outdoor irrigation of ornamental landscapes and turf to no more than two days per week.

The board of directors amended the Water Supply Response Program to comply with the new State Board emergency regulations, adding provisions prohibiting the watering of landscapes during or 48 hours after measurable rainfall and the watering of turf in public street medians. The new rules also change the hours that landscape can be irrigated and shortens the timeframe that customers have to repair leaks.
