  • Failure to repair a controllable leak on property.
  • Watering landscaped areas during rain or high wind.
  • Using pressure washing or hose on impervious surfaces during any drought stage, except to remove spills of hazardous materials or eliminate dangerous conditions that threaten public health, safety, or welfare, or to prepare a surface for maintenance work.
