Statewide Emergency Water Conservation Regulation
The new regulation defines non-functional turf as a ground cover surface of mowed grass that is solely ornamental and not otherwise used for human recreation purposes. In addition to not applying to residences, non-functional turf does not include school fields, sports fields, and areas regularly used for civic or community events.
Customers must comply with this regulation or they will be in violation of the state’s order. More information about the regulation, including a list of frequently asked questions, can be found on the State Water Resources Control Board’s website.
