Monte Vista Water District's Board of Directors adopted Ordinance 33 establishing year-round water use efficiency best practices. District customers are required to practice the following common sense measures to use water as efficiently as possible:

  • Set automatic irrigation timers to water between the hours of 8 p.m. and 8 a.m.
    • Exceptions: Hand-watering, drip irrigation, "smart" (e.g., weather-based) irrigation controllers
  • Adjust watering and fix broken heads to avoid excessive runoff from irrigation
  • Turn off irrigation during rain
  • Repair leaks within seven (7) days of discovery
  • Use a hose with a shut-off nozzle to wash vehicles, or use automatic commercial wash
  • No hosing down of paved surfaces, except when required for health or safety purposes
  • Restaurants serve water only upon request
  • Hotels offer guests the option to not launder linen daily
