A controversial and costly water waster fine is in the hands of state regulators.
Officials have proposed a $500 fine per day for people caught over-watering front lawns, hosing down sidewalks or washing cars without a nozzle on the hose.
This fine is aimed at increasing water conservation during our drought.
Officials said conservation efforts so far have produced disappointing results.
If the fine is approved, it could go into effect as soon as August 1, 2014.
