Pasadena we don’t have a problem but your cooperation is essential in navigating this hot summer safely.

🚨ATTENTION RESIDENTS 🚨
💧Our water system, like most others in the state, is being taxed because of the current drought conditions.
While Pasadena is NOT experiencing a current shortage of water, we are asking fo your help in conservation to avoid low pressure, which is generally the enemy in drought situations. Following these steps will help conserve water:
1) Avoid watering your lawn in mid-day.
2) Check for leaks in your sprinkler system.
3) Avoid washing your car at home until conditions improve.
4) Immediately report waterline breaks to the Mayor’s Action Line at (713) 475-5555.
