Stage 1 Water Conservation is in Effect
Monterey Peninsula: Special rules for a special community: The Peninsula is now operating under Stage 1 of the Expanded Conservation Plan. This is a joint conservation program between the Monterey Peninsula Water Management District (MPWMD) and California American Water, in effect since March 1, 1999. Adhering to this plan is critical to protect our water supply and the sensitive natural environment of the Carmel River.
Under Stage One, a limited two-day per week watering scheduling is required – unless ET controllers are being used – and water waste is prohibited.
Follow the Outdoor Watering Schedule
Saturday & Wednesday
To avoid evaporation, please water outdoors before 9:00 AM or after 5:00 PM.
