Water restrictions take effect in Los Osos
August 12, 2014
A set of restrictions limiting how and when residents can use water for landscaping took effect in Los Osos Monday.
Last week, the Los Osos Community Services District adopted a set of mandatory water conservations measures that will remain in effect indefinitely. The new requirements limit the amount of time residents can use potable water to irrigate lawns, plants, groundcovers and shrubs to 15 minutes per yard on designated days.
Residents now may irrigate only when it is dark outside. Those who live at even-numbered addresses can water their lawns and plants on Wednesdays and Sundays, and residents at odd-numbered addresses can do so on Tuesdays and Saturdays.
The restrictions do not apply to community recreational facilities.
