EBMUD has declared a Stage 4 critical drought and has put the following water restrictions in effect:

  • Limit watering of outdoor landscapes to no more than two non-consecutive days per week and prevent runoff
  • Water only before 9 am or after 6 pm
  • No watering allowed within 48 hours of measurable rainfall
  • No watering of ornamental turf on public street medians allowed
  • Use a broom or air blower, not water, to clean hard surfaces such as driveways and sidewalks, except as needed for health and safety purposes
  • Use only hoses with shutoff nozzles to wash vehicles
  • Turn off fountains or decorative water features unless the water is recirculated

These restrictions apply to everyone — individuals, businesses, homeowners associations, schools and other public entities. As a result, the City of Berkeley has turned off the irrigation to the grass areas around the fountain, in the median between Los Angeles and Mendocino, and the perimeter of The Circle.
