California water restrictions go into effect

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – San Diegans will now be able to only water their yards twice a week as part of the statewide water restrictions that went into effect Monday.

Houses with addresses that end in odd numbers can irrigate on Sunday and Thursday, while those ending in even numbers can water on Wednesday and Saturday. Any watering can now only be done between 6 p.m. and 10 a.m. for a maximum of five minutes per day.

San Diego is expected to cut back water use by 8 percent to 36 percent as a means to help meet Governor Jerry Brown’s 25 percent statewide water restrictions.

Fines for those found wasting water will range anywhere from $100 to $1,000.
