The City of Rancho Cordova is partnering with its local water providers to help save water during the drought. The State Water Resources Control Board has adopted new regulations that require a 25% reduction in statewide water use.
As part of this plan, the Board has enacted new regulations that impact Rancho Cordova businesses.
For Restaurants: Eating or drinking establishments shall only serve water when the customer requests it. Eating or drinking establishments include but are not limited to restaurants, hotels, cafes, cafeterias, bars, or other public places where food or drink are served and/or purchased.
For Hotels: Operators of hotels and motels shall provide guests with the option of choosing not to have towels and linens laundered daily. The hotel or motel shall prominently display notice of this option in each guest room.
For All Businesses: Outdoor watering has been limited to 1 to 2 days per week depending on your water provider, and watering days have been designated depending on your address. Each water provider will also ask businesses to reduce their watering by a specific percentage to meet state regulations. Click here for watering restrictions.
For Businesses with Self-Supplied Water: Commercial, industrial and institutional properties that are not served by a water supplier (or are self-supplied, such as by a groundwater well) also must either reduce water use by 25% or restrict outdoor irrigation to no more than two days per week. No reporting is required but these properties must maintain documentation of their water use and practices.
If you have any questions, please contact your water provider. Click here for contact information and conservation resources.
