EL CENTRO, Calif. – The state of California has given residents an avenue to relax required conservation efforts according the a press release issued by the city of El Centro.
City officials state, the water days are no longer in effect thanks to conservation efforts by residents and near average rainfall during the last winter in the northern portion of the state.
“I know this has been an extremely difficult time for our residents. In many cases these water restrictions have affected both quality of life and residential property values; however I am proud of our residents and City for doing our part to adhere to the Governor’s mandate,” stated El Centro Mayor Jason Jackson.
Residents are still encouraged to practice all other “good housekeeping” restrictions such as:
- Use water to clean hard surfaces such as sidewalks, driveways and walkways
- Allow runoff onto streets and gutters from excessive watering
- Wash vehicles without using a hose with a shut-off nozzle
- Use water features such as fountains without a water re-circulating system
