Water Conservation

Water is an important resource with limited supply. In fact, the amount of water available today is the same supply available when dinosaurs roamed the earth. The City of Stockton is committed to conserving this precious resource.


To comply with State-mandated water regulations, the Stockton City Council approved the following water use restrictions:


 No Watering Between 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.


Written authorization from the MUD is required to drain or refill a pool between June 1 and October 1.


Report Water Wasting
