California Water Board
Effective Immediately - NEW Water Conservation Emergency Regulation

The State Water Board has adopted a new water conservation emergency regulation to ensure more aggressive conservation across the state.

The regulation requires that owners and managers of commercial, industrial, and institutional properties, as well as homeowners' associations (HOAs), immediately cease using potable water for irrigating non-functional turf. View the City of Morgan Hill's water conservation webpage for a summary, including instances where the regulation does not apply.

Community Corner
COVID vaccines for children ages 6 months
to 4 years are here! 

Flyers in English, Spanish, Vietnamese, and Chinese.

The best place for a young child to receive any vaccine is with their regular healthcare provider. Call your child’s doctor or clinic first to ask about the kids' COVID vaccine, other important childhood vaccinations, and screenings that are important to health.

The County of Santa Clara and many community clinics also offer FREE COVID vaccines. Health insurance is not required to receive the COVID vaccine at County-operated sites. Visit sccFreeVax.org to schedule an appointment or find drop-in clinics. 
 
Vaccinations for younger children may not be available at some pharmacies due to regulations that limit vaccinations given by pharmacists to children ages 3 and older.
