On April 7, 2017, Governor Jerry Brown issued an executive order lifting the drought emergency for most of the state, while asking Californians to continue using water responsibly and make conservation a way of life.

Golden State Water thanks customers for their impressive conservation efforts, and encourages the entire community to continue using water wisely to help keep the state on the path to full drought recovery.

Local water-use and outdoor irrigation restrictions implemented during the drought emergency have been lifted.

Customers are reminded that state law permanently prohibits the following actions that waste potable water:

•  Hosing off sidewalks, driveways and other hardscapes.
• 
Washing a motor vehicle with a hose, unless the hose is fitted with a shut-off nozzle.
• 
Operating a fountain or decorative water feature, unless the water is part of a recirculating system.
• 
Watering outdoor landscapes in a manner that causes excess runoff, or within 48 hours following measurable precipitation.
•  
The irrigation with potable water of ornamental turf on public street medians.
