Drink up! Mesa Water District relaxes outdoor watering rules starting Sunday
Mesa Water District customers will be allowed to water their yards up to three days a week starting Sunday, according to district officials.
Once the new schedule goes into effect, the estimated 108,000 Mesa Water customers in Costa Mesa and portions of Newport Beach will be able to water outdoors before 8 a.m. and after 5 p.m. on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
Watering still will not be permitted when it’s raining or for 48 hours afterward.
The rules will be in place through September, according to district general manager Paul Shoenberger.
State water officials recently extended restrictions on urban water use through October.
