Board Declares Level I Water Shortage

On Oct. 20, 2021, the District Board of Directors voted to declare a Level I Water Shortage in support of Governor Gavin Newsom's Oct. 19 proclamation extending the state drought emergency to include San Diego County. This follows the second driest year on record and with near record low storage in California’s largest reservoirs, along with the first-ever declared shortage of the Colorado River by the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation.  

The governor is further urging Californians to step up their water conservation efforts as the western U.S. faces a potential third dry year. The Level I Water Shortage conservation measures are a 10% voluntary reduction of overall usage.
