Multi year drought conditions have made water conservation a priority for many Southern California residents. In May of 2015, the State Water Board adopted a new water conservation Emergency regulation that added new water waste prohibitions and required cities to reduce water use by 20%. Most recently in 2017 these regulations were revised to include the following restrictions for all California residents:
-Hosing off sidewalks, driveways and other hardscapes;
-Washing automobiles with hoses not equipped with a shut-off nozzle;
-Using non-recirculated water in a fountain or other decorative water feature;
-Watering lawns in a manner that causes runoff, or within 48 hours after measurable precipitation; and
-Irrigating ornamental turf on public street medians.
The City would like to extend its thanks to the residents of Paramount for continuing to use water efficiently. For a few tips about both indoor and outdoor water savings visit Metropolitan Water District.
