The City recently reduced water conservation requirements from a Stage 2
water supply condition with a 20% water use reduction goal, to a Stage 1
condition with a goal of 10% reduction in water use. This change is based
on an increase in the water supply available to Southern California, due to
last winter’s significant rainfall in Northern California, which prompted
the State of California to allow the City to remove the 20% water use
reduction goal altogether. The City recognizes that our region received a
low amount of rainfall last winter and continues to experience the effects
of drought conditions. Therefore, the City enacted a Stage 1 water supply
condition to maintain a 10% water use reduction goal while allowing City
water customers an additional day to water landscaping in an effort to
minimize the amount of vegetation, especially trees, being lost due to the
prolonged reduction in watering. All City water customers must now meet
Stage 1 water supply requirements.
