Drought and Water Conservation

Drought Regulations

Are there still water restrictions?

Yes. The State of California has directed cities and water agencies to continue conservation efforts.

In June 2016, the Sunnyvale City Council adopted a new water use reduction target of 15 percent through June 30, 2017.

Updated Irrigation Schedule

An ordinance that passed in 2016 loosened outdoor irrigation restrictions. You may now water your yard a maximum of three days a week. (Drip irrigation is exempt from this schedule.)

  • Odd-numbered addresses water on Monday, Thursday and Saturday
  • Even-numbered addresses water on Tuesday, Friday and Sunday
