Prohibited Use of Water Charge

The Water Conservation and Water Supply Shortage Plan (“Plan”) articulates certain actions to be taken by LBWD in order to manage water supplies in shortage and non-shortage conditions. One of those actions is to prohibit certain uses of water under different water supply conditions.

Repeated violation of a prohibited use of water (PUoW) may result in the customer receiving a PUoW Charge. A full description of the PUoW Charge can be found in Section 1905 of the LBWD Rules and Regulations.

A PUoW Charge results from having received a Notice of Violation. If a customer receives a Notice of Violation, that notice may be appealed using the Request Hearing to Appeal NOV Form.
