Temporary Use Bans usually apply to households, but some restrictions also affect businesses. To see if your business is affected, check your retailer or water company’s website.

Water use for commercial and essential purposes, like car washes and garden centers, is usually not restricted. However, it’s a good idea for everyone to save water whenever possible.

If your business has its own place, contact your water retailer first for any issues or questions about water and wastewater services. They can tell you the rules for your location. If your business doesn’t have a dedicated place (e.g., taxi drivers or window cleaners), check with your water company or retailer to know about any restrictions.

Remember, even if there’s no Temporary Usage Ban in your area, it’s still important to conserve water.
