Soquel, California [July 17, 2014] – While the State Water Resources Board is now taking new steps to require the public to increase water conservation, the Soquel Creek Water District (District) and its customers are several leaps ahead.
The State Board approved new emergency regulations on Tuesday aimed at reducing outdoor water use and eliminating water waste. The District has required several of these measures for many years, and the District Board unanimously passed a strengthened ordinance that went into effect June 17, 2014. This action supports the District’s declaration of a Groundwater and Stage 3 Water Shortage Emergency.
