Governor's Call to Action Underscores Need to Save Water Immediately

 Water Authority's Board will address water supply cutbacks April 23  

"Today's call to action by the governor and the record low April snowpack emphasize just how urgent water conservation is for San Diego County and the rest of California. While we are still reviewing the details of this morning's executive order, we support the governor's leadership and will do everything possible to help our region comply with the mandates.

"San Diego County has prepared prudently for drought conditions, but we are entering uncharted territory after four dry years coupled with record high temperatures. The Water Authority's Board of Directors meets on April 23 to set water supply cutback levels, but residents and businesses shouldn't wait. Reduce landscape irrigation, trim shower times, fix all leaks immediately - and urge your friends and neighbors to do the same. By conserving now, we preserve our limited storage reserves in case next winter's snowpack is as meager as this one."  


-- Mark Weston, chair

San Diego County Water Authority Board of Directors
