California Water Restrictions – Here’s What You Need to Know

california drought

By Pleasant Hill Times

PLEASANT HILL, CA – There’s been a lot of reports recently about water restrictions in California but what exactly are the water restrictions and how can we save water at home?

In Contra Costa County we are required to cut our water consumption by 24 percent, or 200 gallons per day, when compared to county water usage in 2013.

Fines Coming

If you use more than 200 gallons of water per day you can expect to see an increase in your monthly water bill from the Contra Costa Water District (CCWD), fines, or both.

The Contra Costa Water District will be mailing out letters in early June to all Contra Costa County residents regarding what they can expect in terms of rate increases and fines if they pass the threshold of 200 gallons of water per day.

Stage 4 Drought

There’s no denying that the State of California is experiencing the worst drought we’ve seen in decades and now that we’ve officially entered a Stage 4 drought it’s the responsibility of every resident to do what they can to save water including the following:

  • Regulate your outdoor water usage – Water no more than 2 days per week either before 9:00 am or after 6:00 pm.
  • Don’t water after rainstorms.
  • No watering after measurable rainfall.
  • Turn off outdoor fountains.
  • Don’t use water to clean your driveway or walkways.

Pleasant Hill Home For Sale – 4 Steps To Increasing Your Home’s Value before You List It

home for sale pleasant hill

By Pleasant Hill Times

So you’re thinking about listing your Pleasant Hill Home for Sale and are eager to move onto a bigger home in the East Bay.

Before you list your home for sale make sure you follow these 4 tips which will enable you to increase your home’s value before you list it.

Tip 1 – Start Cleaning Your Home NOW

Wanting to list your Pleasant Hill Home for Sale is great but, don’t wait until the last minute to start cleaning your home, start cleaning it now, especially those hard to reach areas or parts of your home where you think people might never inspect like your medicine cabinet, closets or refrigerator.

Tip 2 – Update One Room at a Time

Renovating your home is a great idea but it’s always best to start slowly and go one room at a time to avoid getting overwhelmed on taking on too many projects at once.

Tip 3 – Don’t Paint The Trim!

Did you know that painting walls is generally a lot easier than painting trim? Yes, it’s true.

You may think that painting the trim in your home will make each room look better but this may create a problem for some home buyers who think that painted trim looks bad in a Pleasant Hill Home for Sale.

Tip 4 – Stick with Neutral Window Coverings

When choosing window coverings it’s best to choose drapery, blinds or other window coverings which are neutral colors since the average home buyer may take those window coverings down anyway after buying your Pleasant Hill home for sale.

Pleasant Hill News – Gas Prices Continue To Drop in Pleasant Hill and the Bay Area

East Bay Gas Prices

By Pleasant Hill Times

PLEASANT HILL, CA – One of the best Pleasant Hill News items this week is that gas prices have continued to drop across the Bay Area by 30 cents or more at most stations and now the average gallon of gas here costs just $3.11 per gallon.

Where Are The Lowest Prices?

Right now the lowest gas prices can be found in Concord where prices are hovering near $3.00 per gallon.

Thanks to AAA and the American Automobile Association we know that gas prices in the East Bay are still higher than the $2.39 per gallon National Average, but the good news is that at least we’re not paying $4.00 or more per gallon in the East Bay like we have in the past.

When Will Prices Go Up?

If you follow Pleasant Hill News like we do, you know that gas prices typically start going up once the Memorial Day weekend arrives since this is usually the beginning of the summer driving season.

You can easily get prepared for the increase in summer gas prices by preparing your vehicle now for summer driving by doing the following:

  • Buy new tires
  • Get an oil change
  • Tune up your vehicle
  • Change your air filter
