Water Conservation Measures Still in Effect

Even when it rains, we are still an a drought

On December 7, 2022, the State Water Resources Control Board will meet to consider extending emergency regulations that prohibit certain wasteful water use practices statewide and encourage the efficient use of water at all times. 

As the seasons change and wintry weather begins to make its appearance, the CCSD would like to remind you to continue to use water efficiently and to follow all water shortage response actions still in effect. 

Below is a quick table of just some state and local restrictions in effect today. Visit our drought webpage for a complete list.
