With California experiencing one of the most severe droughts on record, the State Water Board has adopted emergency regulations which target outdoor water use. Four specific wasteful uses of potable water are now prohibited statewide:
• Using water to wash any driveway or sidewalk
• Using a hose to wash a motor vehicle, unless the hose is equipped with a shutoff nozzle
• Overwatering lawns and landscapes such that excessive runoff flows onto adjacent property, walkways, roadways, or parking lots
• Using water in a fountain or other decorative water feature, unless the water is recirculated

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has issued a Letter of Map Revision (LOMR) for the Napa Creek Area, informing the City of Napa that the Flood Insurance Study Report and Flood Insurance Rate Map have been revised. This remapping is a result of the recently completed Napa Creek Flood Protection Project and is part of the larger flood project being constructed by the Napa County Flood Control and Water Conservation District and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in partnership with The City of Napa. The project achieved environmental restoration of Napa Creek through much of downtown while also greatly increasing flood protection to businesses and residents in the area. The new map from FEMA which acknowledges the completed work became effective November 12, 2014.

The City of Napa has released a new mobile application designed to provide enhanced access to the online Service Center. Using a smart phone, users can easily submit service requests in 27 categories, adding a photo if desired. These service requests cover a wide range of common issues, from tree issues to problems with graffiti, traffic signals, weeds and more. The mobile app also links to the database of Frequently Asked Questions, City contact information, and event calendars, and serves as an extension of the online Service Center which has been in use since early 2008. The app is available for the iPhone from the Apple App Store and for the Android from Google Play. A Windows version of the app is in development.
