The production of potable water for residential use in the Camrosa Water District service area was down for the second month in a row since the beginning of the State Water Board's drought reporting period. From a reduction of only 23 percent in June, continued conservation efforts cut July's production down to 32 percent. This brings Camrosa's two-month cumulative reduction to 28 percent.

Closing the gap

Governor Brown's April 1st Executive Order called for a 25-percent reduction statewide from water use in 2013. In June of this year, California reduced 27 percent, meaning the majority of the state's 405 urban water suppliers exceeded, met, or were within one percent their reduction targets. The state has made it clear that they are monitoring water use closely, and "will be contacting all suppliers more than one percent away from meeting their conservation standard."

So while it's good that Camrosa moved from nine percent away from our goal in June to four percent after factoring in July, we're not out of the woods yet. We need to keep our efforts up and our reduction tracking towards that 32-percent target.

Review Camrosa's standard water-use prohibitions and the Stage Three Water Supply Shortage requirements put into effect in May:
  • – Outdoor landscape irrigation is limited to TWO NIGHTS A WEEK, between 5 p.m. and 9 a.m.
  • – Filling or refilling pools is prohibited except for health and safety reasons
  • – No new potable water service will be provided
  • – Water leaks are to be corrected in 24 hours
  • – Wash-down of hard pavement is prohibited
  • – Drinking water to be served only upon request at eating or drinking facilities
  • – For details, see the Emergency Stages excerpted from
    Ordinance 40-10

Stage Three also states that “the District may implement other water use requirements as determined by the Board to meet water supply shortage or water emergency conditions.” If additional drought contingencies arise and the Board determines further action is required, our customers will be duly noticed, and this page will continue to be updated.
