Statewide Drought: Mandatory water-use restrictions now in effect
The State Water Resources Control Board on March 17, 2015 approved emergency regulations for mandatory conservation in response to California’s historic drought. The new regulations extend and augment the existing emergency drought regulations, but do not go into effect immediately. CVWD is reviewing the new regulations and will notify customers when an implementation plan has been developed. View our current water-use restrictions fact sheet

Due to an overwhelming response from customers, funding has been depleted for some programs. Visit our rebate page
