Water Supply Update

California Emergency Drought Regulations

California Emergency Drought Regulations request everyone to voluntarily reduce water use by 20%. The state regulations also prohibit the District’s non-residential (Commercial, Institutional and Landscape Irrigation) customers from using drinking water for ornamental or non-functional turf irrigation. The District continues to offer mulch and smart landscape rebates to assist these customers and minimize the impacts to the affected landscapes.

Water Wise in the Goleta Valley Video

Water Wise in the Goleta Valley. California has officially entered another drought and many communities across the state face serious challenges ahead to manage their water supplies. While we can always hope for rain next winter and spring, no one can predict when the drought will end. Right now – though – here in the Goleta Valley thanks to the incredible conservation of our customers, and decades of investment in a diverse water supply portfolio, the community is well positioned to weather continued dry conditions.
