Mammoth Community Water District has adopted the Landscape Standards Policy.

Mammoth Lakes, California – The Mammoth Community Water District’s Board of Directors adopted the Landscape Standards Policy, revising landscaping language found in the MCWD Code. The language in the policy aligns current practices with California regulations and the District’s Water Shortage Contingency Plan, as well as a streamlined permitting process.

This new Landscape Standards Policy also includes requirements for customer permits. A Landscaping Permit from the District is required when installing 500 square feet of new landscaping, or when adding new landscaping to a property that increases the total area of landscape to 500 square feet or more. A Landscaping Permit is also required if replacing 2,500 square feet or more of existing landscape. There are no fees for single-family residential landscaping permits less than 5,000 square feet, or multi-family residential or non-residential landscaping permits less than 1,000 square feet.

The Landscape Standards Policy and the updated Landscape Permit Application can both be found on the District’s website:

For questions about the Landscape Standards Policy or assistance with the Landscape Permit Application, please contact Michael Draper during normal business hours at (760) 934-2596 ext. 274.
