What Is Required of SCWA Customers to Support Conservation
In the April 17, 2015 draft of the State Water Board’s Emergency Drought Regulation, the State Water Board has specifically identified a 32% Conservation Requirement for the Sacramento County Water Agency. The State’s Drought Regulation will be finalized and adopted on May 5, at which time SCWA will be assigned a final conservation requirement.
In order for SCWA and its customers to achieve this conservation requirement, SCWA implemented Stage 3 of its adopted SCWA Water Shortage Contingency Plan.
Stage 3 requirements are as follows: SCWA customers will be limited to 1 day a week to irrigate turf. With a goal of helping our customers preserve trees and perennial shrubs, watering by drip system will be permitted 3 days a week. ACTIVITIES PROHIBITED BY EMERGENCY REGULATIONS:
