Outside irrigation

On May 18th, 2017 the Council Waived the Second Reading and Adopted Ordinance Number 801 amending the Coalinga Municipal Code related to the Water Conservation Plan to allow irrigation watering any day of the week.

No Water Wasting

Allowing watering any day does not allow water to be wasted. Other language in the Ordinance remains unchanged and includes:

  • No watering during the heat of the day
  • No hosing of driveways
  • No water running to street gutters
  • Shut-off nozzles must be used

Allowing watering any day will be beneficial to the water system operationally because the demand on the water plant will be more consistent day to day, avoiding the 24 hour suspension of irrigation on Thursdays under the current Stage 1.
