15.04.100 Right to Impose Water Use Restrictions.
The City shall have the right to forbid and/or establish certain specified hours for lawn and garden sprinkling and other nonessential uses of water within the whole or specified parts of the City when there is an actual or impending water shortage, extreme pressure loss in the distribution system, or for any other reasonable cause. The City may at any time determine such rules and/or restrictions to be necessary and after reasonable notification thereof may enforce same. Upon the violation of any such rule and/or restriction, the water may be shut off to the premises of the violator without notice and shall not be turned on again until the owner or occupant of the premises has agreed to comply with the rules and/or restrictions and has paid to the City, in addition to any other applicable charges, a penalty charge as set forth by resolution of City Council.
