On August 4 the Huntington Park City Council authorized mandatory water conservation efforts as a result of the ongoing statewide drought. The water use restrictions are intended to reduce water use by at least 10 percent through the following measures:
1. Limiting watering days to only two days per week between the hours of midnight-6 a.m. and 6 p.m.-midnight
2. No hose washing of sidewalks, driveways, or other paved surfaces
3. Washing of cars or other equipment shall only be done with a bucket or a hose equipped with a shutoff nozzle
4. No water shall be used to clean or fill decorative fountains (unless part of a recirculating system)
5. Restaurants are not to serve drinking water unless requested by the customer
6. All plumbing leaks should be repaired immediately
7. Sprinkler water may not run off landscaped areas to streets or sidewalks
The goal of the City’s water conservation program is to promote consumer awareness to reduce water usage. The water conservation program has enforcement provisions including notifications and fines. City staff will work with residents and businesses to ensure that they are following water use restrictions. However, flagrant violators will be subject to formal enforcement actions.
