Declaration of Policy, Purpose & Intent

Section 114-221. - Declaration of Policy, Purpose & Intent

To conserve the available water supply and protect the integrity of water supply facilities with particular regard for domestic water use, sanitation and fire protection, and to protect and preserve the public health, welfare, and safety, and minimize the adverse impacts of a water supply shortage or other water supply emergency conditions, the city hereby adopts the regulations and restrictions set out in this article on the delivery and consumption of water.

Water uses regulated or prohibited under this drought contingency plan (the "plan") are considered to be non-essential and continuation of such uses during times of water shortage or other emergency water supply conditions is deemed to constitute a waste of water, which subjects the offender to penalties as defined in section 114-230.
