Water Restrictions can be used to inform the public about watering restrictions. By using the interactive map, the utility can inform the public about permitted water use and times watering is allowed by service area zone.

Water Restrictions is designed to be shared with the public as either a standalone application or embedded in a utility's website. When hosted on ArcGIS Online, the service is scalable and will not impact the utility's office network when under high demand.


Water Restrictions requires specific technical experience and software.
