On August 20, 2015 the State Water Resources Control Board removed the Golden State Water Company – Ojai system from the list of Urban Water Suppliers. As a result, the assigned conservation standard of 36% has been lifted.
Golden State Water Company (GSW) has adjusted the outdoor irrigation restrictions for its Ojai customers. In cooperation with the Stage 3 restrictions implemented by Casitas Municipal Water District, the wholesale provider for GSW, outdoor irrigation restrictions for Ojai customers will be adjusted effective Aug. 1, 2016, limiting outdoor watering to one day per week.
Outdoor irrigation must be limited to day per week. All watering should occur before 8 am or after 7 pm.
These outdoor irrigation restrictions do not apply to trees or edible vegetation watered solely by drip or microspray systems.
|Addresses Ending In:||Watering Days|
|Even Numbers (0, 2, 4, 6, 8)||Sunday|
|Odd Numbers (1, 3, 5, 7, 9)||Saturday|
Additionally, Ojai citizens are reminded that the following practices that waste potable water are prohibited in California, per Governor Jerry Brown’s Executive Order issued on May 9, 2016:
