Sec. 10-2.1106.  Level 2 Water Conservation Measures.
   (a)   A Level 2 Water Supply Shortage exists when the City Council determines, that due to drought or other water supply conditions, a severe 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 2 Water-Supply Shortage condition, the City will implement mandatory Level 2 conservation measures identified in this section.
   (b)   Additional Conservation Measures: In addition to the prohibited uses of water identified in Sections 10-2.1104 and 10-2.1105, the following additional water conservation requirements apply during a declared Level 2 Water Supply Shortage:
   (1)   Limits on Watering Days: Watering or irrigating of lawn, landscape or other vegetated area with potable water is limited to two 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 one day 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 forty-eight (48) hours of notification by the City unless other arrangements are made with the City.
   (3)   Limits on Filling Ornamental Lakes or Ponds: Filling or re-filling ornamental lakes or ponds  with potable water is prohibited, except to the extent needed to sustain aquatic life, provided that such animals are of significant value and have been actively managed within the water feature prior to declaration of a supply shortage level under this article.
   (4)   Limits on Filling Residential Swimming Pools and Spas: Re-filling of more than one foot and initial filling of residential swimming pools or outdoor spas with potable water is prohibited.
