Please note: Effective July 1, water allocations will no longer be based on grass. Instead, it will be based on drought tolerant landscaping irrigation with a water efficient irrigation system, such as drip. If you maintain your current watering schedule for grass, you will most likely go over your allocation and result in a high water bill. Click here for more information
