In support of the state drought emergency, the Beverly Hills City Council on June 14 adopted additional water conservation measures that are now in effect.
Residents and businesses are required to maintain a two-day a week watering schedule, with no watering (sprinklers or hose) between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. and no water run-off. For locations north of Santa Monica Boulevard, the watering days are Monday and Friday. For locations south of Santa Monica Boulevard, the watering days are Tuesday and Saturday. Supplemental watering for trees is permitted.
“Beverly Hills has always responded to the call to conserve,” Beverly Hills public works director Shana Epstein said. “As we take these proactive steps to achieve a 30% reduction in citywide water use, we thank the members of our community for once again doing their part.”
Real-time monitoring of water use is available by signing up for the city’s water tracking program at water.beverlyhills.org.
