Water Conservation Request
Maintenance of regional water system infrastructure will require a three-week shutdown of the City’s main source of import potable water. The Joint Transmission Line of the Joint Regional Water Supply System will be out of service beginning March 19 and is expected to be back in service by April 10. During this three-week period, residents are urged to take extra measures to conserve water to ensure that the City can provide adequate water service and maintain sufficient water reserves. Landscape irrigation accounts for 50% of the City’s potable water usage and modifying irrigation practices during this three-week period is the easiest way to conserve water. The City is requesting that residents discontinue landscape irrigation with potable water beginning March 19, or at least reduce irrigation to the absolute minimum. For more information regarding this water conservation request, please contact the Utility Department at (949) 234-4400 or visit http://SanJuanCapistrano.org/Departments/Utilities/Water-conservation.
