San Diego with Drought Measures in place since 2011

This is the area I lived in when attending high school.  It sure looks green to me despite a 2 day only watering schedule.  The google street view is dated April 2015!!

Yes, I mention that.  The 2 day watering restrictions has been in place since 2011 and a number of people have been saying that their lawns are brown in So CA.

San Diego County Water Authority dated April 28, 2011:

 

April 28, 2011 - Significant improvements in this year’s weather and water storage led the San Diego County Water Authority Board of Directors today to end mandatory urban and agricultural water supply cutbacks and to lift the agency’s regionwide call for mandatory water use restrictions.

It is currently 2 days. This is fairly recent though. We've had voluntary for a long time.

Re: San Diego with Drought Measures in place since 2011

That's good info. I believe most everyone received pamphlets in the mail as well. I don't have grass anymore and almost all of my plants are drought resistant. I think (or hope) most everyone in San Diego knew mandatory water restrictions were coming. And fortunately the state had provided incentives in the form of partial rebates to those who replaced their grass with artificial or pavers.
