September 2014 Drought Update - Water Conservation Efforts Prove Successful

The State Water Resources Control Board announced that California’s water conservation efforts for the month of July resulted in a 7 ½% decrease in usage across the State as compared to one year ago.

The District is excited to report a 10% decrease in water usage among our customers for the month of August 2014 as compared to last year.  Although the usage has decreased the drought conditions are still very extreme and the District remains in a Stage II Water alert with mandatory water restrictions.
