Q: I see neighbors not watering their front yards at all

The lack of proper yard maintenance is a normal code enforcement matter that we deal with. Property owners are expected to maintain their properties, including watering their landscapes. We are no longer in mandatory drought conditions as the Governor has lifted the drought order. As such we are no longer under the prior watering restrictions (max. 3 days/week). However, residents are encouraged to continue conserving water where possible – but that does not mean that it is appropriate to leave their lawns and shrubs unwatered.

I would encourage residents to forward property maintenance issues such as these to our Code Enforcement staff by calling (562) 567-9190 or by emailing us at WHCodeEnforce@cityofwhittier.orgor reporting through our Whittier 24/7 phone app.
