State Mandated Permanent Conservation

In 2018, the California Legislature passed AB 1668 and SB 606 that built on Governor Brown’s ongoing efforts to make water conservation a way of life in California and created permanent state mandated conservation standards for Water Districts.  It is important to note that the State has the authority (starting in 2027) to fine Water District's for non-compliance not individuals. 

Currently only indoor standards have been established as follows:

  • Current target 55 gallons per person per day for indoor water use
  • In 2025 the target is reduced to 52.5 gallons per person per day for indoor water use
  • In 2030 the target is reduced to 50 gallons per person per day for indoor water use

In the next couple of years it is expected that the state will issue outdoor water budgets (based on irrigable land) to Water District's.

The good news is, that as of 2019, District water customers average 55 gallons per day per person for indoor water use.

Follow the state rule making process.
