Ventura County cities are experiencing exceptionally dry conditions. Many cities currently have imposed outdoor watering restrictions based upon California State Mandate. Please check with your individual water agency for specific restrictions. Outdoor watering accounts for more than 50% total water use. EPA estimates that nearly 50% or more of that is wasted due to improperly scheduled, designed or maintained irrigation systems.
