Water inadvertently ends up on the sidewalk as sprinklers spray water on green space in Palm Springs, Calif., on September 21, 2021.

The Coachella Valley Water District will consider implementing several water conservation measures on Tuesday, including a ban on outdoor water use for spray irrigation during daytime hours, requiring restaurants to only serve water upon request, and increasing the turf rebate amount. 

The meeting comes as the state is in a deepening drought after one of the driest starts to spring in decades. Almost all of California and much of the Western U.S. is in severe to extreme drought, according to U.S. drought monitor. 

These actions are all part of CVWD’s Water Shortage Contingency Plan, which was adopted by the Board of Directors in June 2021 as a list of actions to increase domestic water conservation.
