City of Lakeport, California

Irrigation Restrictions Lifted!

On August 15, 2017, the City Council adopted Resolution No. 2630 (2017), which rescinds Resolution No. 2546 (2015) and formally declares an end to the Stage 1 Water Emergency.  The Resolution also addresses ongoing water conservation efforts by restricting wasteful practices.  The goal of the restrictions is to help make water conservation a way of life in our community.

As directed by the State of California to promote water conservation, the City will continue to prohibit wasteful water usage practices such as:

  • Hosing off sidewalks, driveways and other hardscapes;

  • Washing automobiles, boats, RVs, etc. 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. 

California received record amounts of rainfall during the winter of 2016/2017 which replenished the water supplies throughout the State, including Lakeport’s groundwater supply in Scotts Valley.  As a result, the Governor issued an Executive Order in April 2017 which lifted the drought emergency in most California counties and rescinded certain drought-related emergency proclamations and executive orders issued in 2014 and 2015.  This Executive Order also reiterated the State’s commitment to long-term water conservation efforts by extending a prohibition on certain wasteful water usage practices.
