Water Conservation Plan to Allow Irrigation Watering any Day of the Week 5-18-17

On May 18th 2017 the Council Waived the Second Reading and Adopted Ordinance No. 801 Amending the Coalinga Municipal Code related to the Water Conservation Plan to allow irrigation watering any day of the week. This ordinance will take place 30 Days from passage.

The City has an abundant supply of water through 2017. Consequently, water customers may be allowed to use adequate water in a responsible manner to keep landscape green. However, the existing Stage 1 Ordinance limits watering to three specified days per week. The result is that customers must know what day it is to water, and the restriction suggests the consequence of enforcement in the event customers water on the wrong day. Amending the Stage 1 Ordinance to allow watering any day allows customers to use water when they want, and removes the need for enforcement for watering on a wrong day.

Allowing watering any day does not allow water to be wasted. Other language in the Ordinance remains unchanged: No watering during the heat of the day, no hosing of driveways, no water running to street gutters, and shut-off nozzles must be used.

Additional incremental water sales and the resultant revenue will be beneficial to the water system to cover increased operating costs and needed system projects, although the greatest revenue benefit has already been achieved through the conversion from Stage 2 to Stage 1.

Allowing watering any day will be beneficial to the water system operationally because the demand on the water plant will be more consistent day to day, avoiding the 24 hour suspension of irrigation on Thursdays under the current Stage 1.
