Is Hawk’s Landing Golf Club in compliance with Hi-Desert Water District Codes?


This is a follow-uo to “Yucca Valley Hawk’s Landing Golf Club at Blue skies imprudent on water useage. July 12, mid day, around 2:00, all the sprinklers were on full blast at Hawk’s Landing. It was though it imprudent to water during the heat of the day and at the height of the evaporation rate. After all, the the State Water Quality Control Board a few day later approved restrictions and fines on water use abuses.

New state restrictions and penalties may or may not apply to Hawk’s Landing watering between the hours of 9:00 a.m, to 5:00 p.m. 

Yet, a CT reader called attention to Hi-Desert Water District Codes, Section 5.70.010 Prohibitions and restrictions on the use of water.” It appearsPart D” below may apply to Hawk Landing concerning watering new greens during during the hours of 9:00 a.m, to 5:00 p.m.

    Is Hawk's Landing a part of the HDWD or do they own their own aquifer?

    We're in a major drought so unless they're watering those golf courses with grey water, they should not be allowed to water at all!
    Watering lawns should also be outlawed.
    About the only things that should be watered are vegetables and maybe flowers.
    People and animals should be first to the water trough.

    I'm from the east coast and I never understood this obsession with green well manicured lawns. You water, it grows, then you've got to mow it!
    Personally, it takes time or money, whichever it is, I've got a life and it doesn't include my lawn! 🙂
    GET A LIFE! 🙂

    Good question Larry. Hawk's Landing was to get a controversial scaled-back reduction their water rates, but then there was an issue of it owning the aquifer beneath the golf course. Their homepage is pretty skimpy and doesn't address this issue.

    The better question is, "Does the HDWD care if their friends at Hawk's Landing Golf Club are in violation of Hi-Desert Water District Code?
