California Drought

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.

Visit our conservation page for tools and resources to help reduce water use, including the drought watering guide. Help your community by reporting water waste. Learn about new laws affecting homeowner associations. Visit www.saveourh2o.org for statewide information about the drought.
Conservation programs for residents, businesses and HOAs
