Water Shortage Crisis Declaration

The Board of Trustees has found and determined that the ordinary demands and requirements of water consumers cannot be satisfied without depleting the water supply to the extent that there may be insufficient water for human consumption, sanitation, and fire protection while meeting the minimum storage target.


In an effort to extend current supplies of water and minimize the effects of the current and possible future water supply shortage, the Board is calling for District customers to implement drought contingency and water reduction measures, improve use efficiencies, and be prepared to prioritize diversions for public health and safety and fire suppression.
