The following fines will be imposed when a customer violates the mandatory restrictions set forth in CVWDC 3.30.010.

A. First Violation – Written Notice. Any notice required under this chapter may include, for example and not by way of limitation, the following information: (1) the water conservation stage and restrictions that are in effect; (2) actions required for compliance in order to prevent future violations; and (3) penalties and enforcement actions which may be imposed for future violations.

B. Second Violation within a 12-Month Period. A fine will be imposed in the amount of $50.00 which will be added to the customer’s water service bill.

Any customer receiving a second violation may at his or her option successfully complete CVWD Water School in lieu of paying the $50.00 fine.

C. Third Violation within a 12-Month Period. A fine will be imposed in the amount of $100.00 which will be added to the customer’s water service bill.

D. Fourth Violation and Any Subsequent Violation within a 12-Month Period. A fine will be imposed in the amount of $200.00 which will be added to the customer’s water service bill.

E. Fifth Violation and Any Subsequent Violation within a 12-Month Period. A fine will be imposed in the amount of $500.00 which will be added to the customer’s water service bill.

G. Seventh Violation and Any Subsequent Violation within a 12-Month Period. A fine will be imposed in the amount of $2,000 which will be added to the customer’s water service bill.

In the event of any violation after the seventh violation within a 12-month period, the general manager, or his/her designee, may determine, in his/her reasonable discretion, that the continued violation of the restrictions set forth in this chapter warrant the initiation of procedures for the termination of water service pursuant to CVWD’s regulations governing domestic water service (“regulations”), as they may be amended from time to time. In addition to any other remedies provided in this chapter or available under applicable law, CVWD may alternatively seek injunctive relief in the superior court or take enforcement action, including discontinuing or appropriately limiting water service by the installation of a flow restricting device to any customer, for violations of this chapter. All remedies provided herein shall be cumulative and not exclusive. (Ord. 1422.5 § 7, 2017; Ord. 1422.4 § 7, 2016; Ord. 1422.3 § 7, 2016)
