The San Diego Municipal Code 147.04 requires that all buildings, prior to a change in property ownership, be certified as having water-conserving plumbing fixtures in place. All residential, commercial and industrial water customers who receive water service from the City of San Diego Public Utilities Department are affected by this ordinance.
