Water district will consider mandatory conservation

The Marin Municipal Water District is proposing mandatory water-conservation measures in response to last winter’s record-low rainfall. The measures, which if approved would be the first since 1988, would take effect May 1 and would limit outdoor watering to one assigned day per week. The conservation regulations would also prohibit installing new or expanded landscaping; power-washing homes and other buildings; refilling pools, hot tubs and decorative fountains; and washing vehicles, boats and planes without using a hose with a shutoff nozzle. The district’s board of directors plans to vote on the proposed ordinance at its April 20 meeting.
