On August 23, 2021, the Triunfo Water & Sanitation District board voted to initiate Stage 1 water conservation measures for its nearly 14,000 Oak Park residential and business potable water users. The measure goes into effect immediately. The Stage 1 water conservation measures include:
- Watering or irrigation lawn, landscape, or other vegetated areas with potable water is limited to three days per week. The provision does not apply to watering by hand-held hoses equipped with self-closing water shut-off devices. Other exclusions apply.
- Leaks and other malfunctions must be repaired within 72 hours after notification by Triunfo Water & Sanitation District.
- Only recycled water may be used on construction sites for dust control, consolidation or backfill.
Stage 1 measures are the least restrictive on residents. If necessary, the district could implement emergency measures that prohibit all outside watering except for fire prevention, erosion control, and other essential irrigation activities. The district already has permanent water conservation reduction measures in place. Stage 1 restrictions are in addition to these.
