State Water Board Expands and Extends Emergency Water Conservation Regulation
As California enters a fourth year of severe drought, the State Water Resources Control Board has recently adopted an expanded emergency regulation to safeguard the State’s water supplies. Most of the new regulations on potable water use, such as not watering outdoor landscapes in a manner that causes excess runoff, are already a part of CHWD’s requirements under its Stage 3 Water Warning which has been in effect since January 2014. For more information on the State’s mandatory conservation regulations click here.
The CHWD Board of Directors is expected to consider soon whether amendments to CHWD’s Water Conservation Stages may be needed to comply with the State’s new emergency regulation. For now, CHWD customers are asked to continue their efficient water use that resulted in a 20% reduction in water use during 2014 when compared with 2013 usage.
