So I understand 100 percent the reason for the current watering restrictions and adhere to them. My encounters with the KID staff are very cordial and polite. I would not want their jobs, however that is where my understanding ends!
The way this works is you must report your neighbor, or one lone KID worker must physically see you abusing water.
Heads up ... after many calls of abuse in my neighborhood, this is what I have learned. If you water not on your assigned time and call it in (during KID hours) they must show up and actually take a picture, which means they must catch you in that 30-minute underground timed period! If you have a fenced backyard, way to go as they can’t see it.
If it is after hours, there is a 24-hour number to call, but 99.9 percent don’t know the number. Best of all, if you water the entire 12 hours of your twice-weekly watering time, they can’t do anything about it as it is your watering schedule.
