JOSHUA BASIN ADOPTS WATER CONSERVATION ENFORCEMENT ORDINANCE

Water conservation efforts in Joshua Tree just got some teeth. Reporter Taylor Thacker says the Joshua Basin Water District just made strict state standards an enforceable local ordinance…
The Joshua Basin Water District met Wednesday, August 20th to discuss the new water conservation ordinance presented by the state. The ordinance included water use restrictions such as the application of potable water to outdoor landscapes in a manner that causes runoff water onto other property or non-irrigated areas. Other restrictions included the use of a hose to wash vehicles that does not have a shut off nozzle, and the use of potable water in a fountain unless the water is part of a recirculating system. The ordinance also included ways the water district is required to promote water conservation such as making laws to limit outdoor irrigation of ornamental landscapes or turf. The Board adopted this ordinance as presented and without much discussion from the citizens present. The Joshua Basin Water District encourages everyone to conserve as much water as possible during this time of drought. For more information on how you can conserve water, call 760-366-8438.
