At Cal Water, we’re committed to ensuring a reliable supply of safe, clean water to the faucets of every home and business we serve.
After reviewing the impact of 2023’s rainstorms and local water supply conditions, Cal Water has filed an application with the California Public Utilities Commission to roll back from Stage 2 to Stage 1 of our Water Shortage Contingency Plan. The Stage 1 filing is effective immediately on May 8, 2023, but remains subject to a 30-day review period by the CPUC. In Stage 1, there are no longer irrigation day restrictions on outdoor irrigation, unless local ordinances state otherwise, but other restrictions remain in place.
While we are thankful for all of the precipitation that we have received this year and the water savings our customers have achieved, we remind our customers that it is still important to use water wisely and make conservation a way of life, as our changing climate will bring more dry years in the future.
We are here to help our customers save water every day through a variety of programs and rebates to meet your unique needs. Customers can visit the conservation page for more details, and we encourage you to contact us if you have any questions or need assistance.
