23.5.H Water Waste Prevention

Water waste resulting from inefficient landscape irrigation is prohibited. Water waste from irrigation is defined as runoff that leaves the target landscape due to low head drainage, overspray, or similar conditions where water flows onto adjacent properties, non-irrigated areas, walks, or roadways. Overspray and runoff are not considered water waste from irrigation if either one of the following conditions are met:

1. The landscape area is adjacent to semi-pervious or pervious surfaces.

2. The adjacent non-permeable surfaces are designed and constructed to drain entirely to landscape.
