BBCCSD has submitted self-certification data to the State ensuring a three-year supply

On April 1, 2015, Governor Brown issued the fourth in a series of executive orders necessary to address California’s severe drought conditions. Additional Executive Orders, rules and regulations have followed.

The May 2016 regulation that will be in effect from June 2016 through January 2017 requires locally developed conservation standards based upon each agency’s specific circumstances. It replaces the prior percentage based water conservation standard with a localized “stress test” approach. These standards require local water agencies to ensure a three-year supply, assuming three more dry years like the ones the state experienced from 2012 to 2015.\

 Water agencies that would face shortages under three additional dry years are required to meet a conservation standard equal to the amount of shortage, while water agencies with a surplus have a conservation standard of zero.


The CSD has submitted the available material to demonstrate that we have a sufficient supply to meet the needs of our community well into the future. If the self certification is approved, CSD customers will not need to make additional cuts to water use. However, to support long-term supply planning and exercise efficiency, customers do need to maintain the conservation level achieved in recent years.


The CSD does anticipate additional long term regulations from the state, but these will not be released until early 2017. Current regulations require urban water suppliers continue monthly conservation reporting to the state including production, residential gallons per day, violations, corrective actions and so forth.


The recently adopted regulation also keeps in place the specific prohibitions against certain water uses. Those prohibitions include watering down a sidewalk with a hose instead of using a broom or a brush, or over-watering a landscape to where water is running off the lawn, over a sidewalk and into the gutter. Prohibitions directed to the hospitality industry also remain in place. Prohibitions against home owners associations taking action against homeowners during a declared drought remain as well.

CSD is still implementing Stage 2 water restrictions.
