Drought Management

On May 9, 2016, the Governor issued Executive Order B-37-16 stating that, despite winter precipitation, drought conditions may persist in some parts of the state into 2017 and beyond and gave authority to individual Water Agencies to implement water conservation regulations.  On June 15, 2016 the City Council rescinded mandatory water conservation and temporary price adjustments.  The Council also approved a “Water Conservation Plan” to address the need for long term water conservation.
