Water Efficient Landscape Ordinances

San Joaquin County Landscape Water Ordinances

The Water Conservation Act of 2009 along with Assembly Bill 1881 require each county and city planning department to put in place a water conservation ordinance that regulates landscape water use.  These ordinances are still being worked out in San Joaquin County, city by city.  The State has developed a Model Water Efficient Landscape Ordinance that becomes the default regulation if no other is in place by July 2011.  Check back for updates; individual ordinances will be posted as they are put in place.
