(a) A Level 1 Water Supply Shortage exists when the City Council determines, that due to drought or other water supply conditions, a moderate water supply shortage or threatened shortage exists and a consumer demand reduction is necessary to make more efficient use of water and appropriately respond to existing water conditions. Upon the declaration by the City Council of a Level 1 Water Supply Shortage condition, the City will implement mandatory Level 1 conservation measures identified in this section.
(b) Additional Water Conservation Measures: In addition to the prohibited uses of water identified in Section 10-2.1104, the following water conservation requirements apply during a declared Level 1 Water Supply Shortage:
(1) Limits on Watering Days: Watering or irrigating of lawn, landscape or other vegetated area with potable water is limited to three days per week. During November through March, watering or irrigating of lawn, landscape or other vegetated area with potable water is limited to no more than two days per week. This provision does not apply to landscape irrigation zones that exclusively use very low flow drip type irrigation systems when no emitter produces more than two (2) gallons of water per hour. This provision also does not apply to watering or irrigating by use of a hand-held bucket or similar container, a hand-held hose equipped with a positive self-closing water shut-off nozzle or device, or for short periods of time for the express purpose of adjusting or repairing an irrigation system.
(2) Obligation to Fix Leaks, Breaks or Malfunctions: All leaks, breaks, or other malfunctions in the water user's plumbing or distribution system must be repaired within seventy-two (72) hours of notification by the City unless other arrangements are made with the City.
