Drought and Water Conservation
“In July 2021, Governor Gavin Newsom added nine counties including San Luis Obispo to the regional drought state of emergency. He called on Californians to voluntarily reduce their water use by 15%.“
The Los Osos Community Services District Board of Directors declared a Stage III Emergency of our Water Shortage Contingency Plan in April & May 2015. Actions required of our water customers are reducing water usage to 50 gallons per person per day. Customers are expected to remain below this allocation for total water use.
Prohibitions for Stage II Emergency declaration include:
- Outdoor irrigation is restricted to twice a week between the hours of dusk and dawn.
- No water shall be used for cleaning of hard surfaces like driveways, patios, sidewalks or other hardscape.
- Washing of automobiles, trucks, trailers, boats, and other types of mobile equipment not occurring upon the immediate premises of a commercial car wash shall be prohibited unless customers have an automatic shut-off hose nozzle and do not allow water to run off their property.
