July 2 0 2 2
The State of California is currently experiencing historic drought conditions, resulting in emergency water regulations and conservation measures imposed by the Governor and water regulatory agencies. 

In response to these emergency regulations, the Cucamonga Valley Water District (CVWD) calls upon customers to reduce water use by 20%, limit hours of outdoor watering to three days per week based on address numbers, and water between the hours of 4:00 p.m. and 9:00 a.m. 
The City of Rancho Cucamonga is committed to water conservation to ensure a continuing supply of potable water for our community. As part of the City’s water conservation efforts, and in compliance with State mandates, at the June 15th City Council meeting, City Council approved discontinuing irrigation of “non-functional” turf (turf that is considered decorative), within the City’s parkways in Landscape Maintenance Districts 2, 4R, 6, and 7 and the purchase of smart irrigation controllers for better control and monitoring of water use by the City. In the coming weeks, parkways, the area of grass between sidewalks and the street, may begin to appear dry and no longer green due to these statewide water conservation mandates. This does not include grass used for recreation, such as sports fields, school yards, or parks.

Licensing pets is now easier, simplified and more valuable for residents as Rancho Cucamonga Animal Center (RCAC) launches its partnership with DocuPet, a world-leading pet profile, lost pet and licensing platform. Through pet licensing and their complimentary HomeSafe™ 24/7 lost pet service, DocuPet now offers City of Rancho Cucamonga residents an effective pet identification and reunification program that keeps pets out of shelters and returns them home safely. Though pet licensing is mandatory for dogs in the City of Rancho Cucamonga, many local pet owners have yet to register. With the announcement of this new partnership, DocuPet and RCAC hope to attract community pet owners to the program.

Pet owners can learn more and register pet licenses online at cityofrc.docupet.com.

When cooking outdoors, the Rancho Cucamonga Fire District encourages you to follow these 10 grilling safety tips so we can ensure a safe and happy summer for everyone: 

  • BBQ grills should only be used outdoors.

  • Remove grease or fat buildup from the grill and trays before use. 
  • Make sure the grill lid is open before lighting it. 
  • Check gas tank hose for leaks before using the grill. 
  • If the grill flame goes out, turn grill and gas off and wait five minutes before re-lighting. 
  • Keep children and pets at least three feet away from grill. 
  • Never leave the grill unattended. 
  • If using charcoal, let coals cool completely before disposing in a metal container. 
  • Charcoal grills are not allowed in apartment complexes or condominium communities.
