On January 17, 2014, Governor Brown declared a drought emergency in California as the State faces the least amount of rainfall in its 163-year history. California’s water supply is fragile, and the possibility of prolonged drought must always be considered. Malibu depends entirely upon imported supplies for its drinking water. Therefore, it is important to use water efficiently.

The City of Malibu has adopted the following policies:

• Irrigation is prohibited between the hours of 8:00 AM and 8:00 PM.
• Owners of any indoor or outdoor plumbing fixture shall not permit water to leak from such fixture.
• Irrigation may not run off to streets, gutters, or adjacent properties.
• A trigger nozzle is required on hoses used for home car washing.
• The washing down of sidewalks, parking areas, and driveways is not permitted.
• It is only permitted to fill any swimming pool, wading pool, or spa by adding water to top off.
• Potable water (unless it is part of a recycling system) should not be used to clean, fill, or maintain levels in ponds, decorative fountains, or artificial lakes.
• Restaurants, hotels, and cafes shall only serve drinking water upon request.
