Update from the City of West Sacramento on the Coronavirus

  • The City of West Sacramento proclaimed a local state of emergency on March 16, 2020 to address the Coronavirus (COVID-19) public health threat.  This proclamation allows the City to streamline the process of obtaining resources in the form of funding, mutual aid, and operations to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.
  • City Hall, the Recreation Center, Community Center and related programs are now closed to the public through at least Monday, April 13, 2020.  Non-essential City staff in those buildings will be telecommuting or on leave during this time. 
  • The City’s core public services will not be affected and will continue, including police and fire services, operations and maintenance of critical infrastructure (sewer and water), garbage and recycling services, limited parks maintenance, and management of the City’s emergency operations center.
  • Please note: all programs related to Environmental Services (including the Smart Controller Rebate program) are currently on hold. This does not include your trash, recycling and organic service.

During water shortages, like a drought, the City may enforce extra measures to ensure water is used beneficially. The following forms of water waste are always prohibited.

  • Allowing irrigation to run-off to streets and gutters
  • Using a hose not fitted with an automatic shut-off nozzle to wash a vehicle
  • Irrigation of landscape during rainfall
  • Running an irrigation system that applies water to an impervious surface or that is in disrepair

If you see water waste occurring, please report it here. 

Please see recommended watering schedule below.

  • Addresses ending in 1, 3, 5, 7 or 9: Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays
  • Addresses ending in 0, 2, 4, 6 or 8: Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays
