Will I be fined for increased indoor water use?

CVWD allocates a reasonable amount of water based on each customer’s needs and does not fine customers for water use.  

Residential water budgets include an indoor budget and an outdoor budget. The monthly indoor water budget (tier 1) for CVWD customers is about 6,000 gallons of water per household, which is equal to 50 gallons of water per person, per day for a family of four. 

Customers can request a larger indoor water budget if more people live in your home by calling (760) 391-9600. 

Outdoor water budgets (tier 2) are calculated individually for all residential and large landscape customers.
