Water-use restrictions on tap for Rancho Santa Fe water district

For the first time since 2011, customers of the Santa Fe Irrigation District face mandatory water-use restrictions, including a limit of three days per week to water outdoor landscaping.

The district’s board of directors will consider a staff recommendation to declare a “Level 2” water shortage response at its meeting Thursday, Aug. 21. The move is needed to comply with a state water conservation mandate issued on July 15.

If approved, the restrictions would limit watering to early morning or evening; prohibit runoff or overspray from sprinklers; allow watering no more than three days per week based on a schedule established by the district; and require any water leaks to be repaired within 72 hours. (For the full list of restrictions, see below.)
