Drought is Here - A mandatory 20% reduction in water use is currently in effect for City of Sonoma Water Customers.

How does the City of Sonoma enforce water restrictions and water use prohibitions?

While the Sonoma Municipal Code allows for various forms of enforcement, it is City staff’s intent to urge voluntary compliance rather than impose harsh penalties. Staff will initially enforce with reminders when violations are noticed in the normal course of City business. Direct mailed notices, media releases, and temporary signage will be provided to remind residents of the water restrictions in force.
