CITY HALL — Residents must limit outdoor irrigation to 15 minutes a day, per station, three days a week, according to restrictions approved Tuesday by the City Council.
The shift — which still awaits final approval — to the second stage of water restrictions would also limit irrigation to Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, but represented only a portion of what could have been a more restrictive policy. Consideration of the full second stage of the water conservation ordinance, which limits watering in the winter to one day per week, was postponed.
The new rationing measures were approved by the Burbank Water and Power Advisory Board as well as the Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority. They also come after Glendale moved to a three-day irrigation schedule and Crescenta Valley and Los Angeles limited their customers to just two days.
