Stage 2 Water Conservation

The light spring rains, early spring runoff, and intense summer heat have created a water shortage condition in Northern California. Due to these conditions, the City of West Sacramento is focused on improving water conditions this summer and protecting its water supplies in 2014. The City is requesting a Stage 2 Water Conservation effort and encourages residents to irrigate lawns and gardens with less water and during nighttime hours only, to repair leaks in indoor and outdoor plumbing, and to be generally diligent about preserving this precious resource, water.

Residents and businesses are reminded of the following:

  • Do NOT use potable water for washing sidewalks, driveways, streets, parking lots, buildings, or to cool building roofs.
  • Water lawns, landscaping and gardens only before 10 a.m. and after 7 p.m.
  • Water lawns and other landscaping only on alternate days based on address, and not on Mondays. Addresses ending in odd numbers may water Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday; even-numbered addresses on Wednesday, Friday and Sunday. The same schedule applies to washing cars.
