Bellflower Watering Restrictions

Posted on August 12th, 2009 by in Blog, News, Water Conservation


The City of Bellflower is the newest in a long line of cities and water districts to implement mandatory watering restrictions. A new ordinance was passed on July 13, 2009 that requires residents and businesses to abide by new rules aimed at reducing water consumption. The new measures are scheduled to start on August 11, 2009 according to the city’s website. Here are some highlights from the new ordinance:

  • No hose watering or washing down of any sidewalks, walkways, driveways, parking areas, or other paved surfaces
  • No watering of landscape between 10:00 am and 5:00 pm.
  • No watering more often than once per day.
  • No watering more often than every other day.
  • Watering to the extent of excessive runoff due to misaligned or unmaintained sprinklers and/or excessive watering is prohibited.
  • Adherence to the ordinance does not relieve property owners from their legal obligation to maintain landscaping as required.

There are additional restrictions including indoor water conservation measures. To view the entire ordinance click here. Fines for violating the new ordinance start at $100.
