Permanent Water Conservation Measures Enacted
Three emergency water conservation measures put into place during the 2013 drought have been enacted as permanent restrictions. City Council determined these practices to be beneficial conservation practices for Lafayette regardless of drought conditions.
* No outdoor irrigation may occur between the hours of 10:00am and 6:00pm. Exceptions are residential hand watering with a hose, and the irrigation of commercial agriculture, city-owned athletic fields and the city-operated golf course.
* Excessive overrun of water onto any area not covered by vegetation such as sidewalks, curbs, gutters, streets and other paved areas is prohibited.
* The spraying down or washing of any paved area, such as a private driveway, with a hose is not allowed.
