Burbank to Move to Stage III for Water Use Beginning June 27


With continuing drought conditions throughout southern California, Burbank will be moving to Stage III of the Sustainable Water Use Ordinance starting June 27, 2022. 

While Stage III is active, outdoor watering is only allowed two days per week from April – October, on Tuesdays and Saturdays. Attended hand watering is now allowed before 9 am and after 6 pm.

Every city in CA is required to reduce water use by 15%. Burbank has saved about 3.5% of this goal to date.

Fines will be issued to residents and businesses that do not follow the Stage III watering schedule. The first violation is $100, the second is $200, and all subsequent fines after are $500 per fine.
