Message From The General Manager
Although the Governor's April 2015 Executive Order was lifted in April 2017 with Executive Order B-40-17 and previously modified with the May 2016 Executive Order B-27-16 (Making Water Conservation a California Way of Life),
Water Conservation Plan
The District's attached Water Conservation Plan discusses multiple issues related to water conservation. With each issue, the Water Conservation Plan discusses the District's current practice, further District objectives, and challenges in accomplishing the objectives.
Utilizing the District's Strategic Plan, historical usage, and Making Water Conservation a California Way of Life recommendation (which provide the framework for outdoor irrigation standards utilizing evapotranspiration rates for the area, and irrigated and irrigable landscape areas), the District has set an annual water consumption target of 503 units of water per developed acre (1 unit of water equals 748 gallons).
In the last full fiscal year, 2016/2017, the District used 496 units per acre, 1.4% below its water target of 503 units per acre.
