9. Does the prohibition apply to HOAs?

Yes, but only to non-functional turf on property that the HOA owns, not residences. An individual homeowner’s property is considered residential, whereas property owned and maintained by an HOA is considered the same as landscapes owned and maintained by CII. Therefore, the prohibition does not prevent homeowners from irrigating turf; it prohibits the irrigation of non-functional turf (with potable water) on property the HOA owns. However, the prohibition does not apply to turf that is regularly used for recreation and community activities.
