CURRENT WATER SUPPLY CONDITIONS

The Governor of California and the Santa Lorenzo Valley Water District have called on all residents to continue to be water wise in their consumption. At this time mandatory conservation is not in effect but we do encourage our customers to continue good conservation habits with a requested target of 20 percent.

We ask our customers to consider water conservation a way of life. Many customers have already taken action by using water wisely and reducing their water usage. To help with this, we offer a few recommendations defining water waste prohibitions.
