Desert Water holds water restrictions steady

Desert Water Agency (DWA) has announced they will hold at Level 2 of their water shortage contingency plans due to the statewide drought mandates and not increase mandatory conservation measures unlike other agencies have recently.

DWA adopted Level 2 water restrictions in June 2022 and include:

  • No spray/sprinkler irrigation during daylight hours (leak checks are okay – please use a cone)
  • Restaurants to provide water only to guests that ask for it

DWA says that due to the Palm Springs region having an aquifer, there is a buffer against immediate supply concerns that come with drought. However, for long-term sustainability all residents, HOAs and businesses are asked to work to save water.

In the Coachella Valley, Level 1 restrictions for tap water remain in effect.

Any customer that violates the water restrictions could face penalties ranging from $50 to $500.
