Howdy! I’m hoping that in the next edition of The Canyon Chronicle, you can update the erroneous drought conservation guidelines that were published in the June 10 edition. Waterworks has since come to their senses and corrected the edict that outdoor watering is only permitted from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. and is not permitted during daylight hours. A friend of mine fell while attempting to adhere to the guidelines by watering her sloping yard after dark via flashlight after just a few days of the ill-advised restrictions. Not all yards have automated watering systems so here is updated information for more details and flexibility: https://dpw.lacounty.gov/wwd/web/Conservation/droughtinfo.aspx. A better, less draconian explanation can be found in the FAQs: https://dpw.lacounty.gov/wwd/web/Conservation/DroughtInfoFAQ.aspx Thank you! —Maureen Kemper LACWD has a Water Shortage Contingency Plan, which provides details on how LACWD responds in the event of a declared water emergency or water shortage condition.
