Water Conservation Ordinance Level I


Board of Directors adopt Level I Water Conservation Alert

What are the permanent water conservation requirements?

The following water conservation requirements are effective at all times and are permanent. Violations will be considered waste. Limits on watering hours: No watering from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., except by hand Limit on watering duration: Limit of 15 minutes per day per station Excessive waterflow or runoff prohibited Washing down hard or paved surfaces prohibited Obligation to fix leaks, breaks or malfunctions within 72 hours

Re-circulating water required for water fountains and decorative water features Wash vehicles only with a bucket or shut-off nozzle Drinking water served only upon request

Additional water conservation levels

A warning system has been instituted to respond to drought or other water supply conditions — so when absolutely necessary — additional Water Conservation Levels may be imposed by the Serrano Water District. Again, our goal is to keep water flowing for everyone.


Same as permanent, with the additional restrictions: Watering limited to three days a week

The water service for the residents of Villa Park and a small portion of Orange is supplied by the Serrano Water District, which is an independent governmental body with an elected Board of Directors. It is separate and distinct from the City of Villa Park Municipal government, but is an integral part of the community.

The District is governed by a Board of Directors elected to terms of four years by the voters residing within the district. All board members reside in their assigned divisions and, as such, pay the same water rates as their neighbors. The members of the present board are: Robert F. Rickerl, President; C.L. "Larry" Pharris, Jr., Vice President; and members, Rich Freschi, Jerry L. Haight, and Frank O. Bryant. The Board is responsible for overseeing the operations of the District and for making all major legal and financial decisions. The Board of Directors is also responsible for the management of Irvine Lake and its recreational activities.
