* Prohibits watering lawns or landscape between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m.

* Customers can be fined if sprinklers allow excess water to flow onto sidewalks, driveways, streets or gutter.

* Hotels and motels must give guests the choice not to have towels and linens laundered daily.

PHASE II adds:
* Landscape irrigation allowed Monday, Thursday and Saturday only.

* Using a hand-held hose to water lawns and landscape allowed any day between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m.
