Drought and Water Conservation

“With California experiencing a second consecutive dry winter, California Governor Gavin Newsom announced on April 21, 2021, several actions related to drought preparedness. Additional drought emergency proclamations were issued May 10, 2021 and July 8, 2021.“


This is a reminder that the Los Osos CSD Board of Directors Declared a Stage III Emergency of the District’s Water Shortage Contingency Plan.  We have been under this emergency declaration since 2015.  Stage III states our water usage allocation is 50 gallons per occupant per day based on a household of 3 occupants.  So that equates to 150 gallons per household per day.  If you look at your water bill, one unit (100 cubic feet) of water is equal to 748 gallons.

Here are some ways Los Osos residents can conserve water:

  • Take short showers instead of baths.
  • Turn off the water to brush teeth, shave and soap up in the shower.
  • Fill the sink to shave.
  • Repair leaky toilets, or replace with a dual flush or low flow toilet.
  • Only run the washing machine and dishwasher when you have a full load.
  • Use a low flow shower head and faucet aerators.
  • Fix leaks.
  • Don’t overwater your lawn or water during peak periods.
  • Monitor your landscape irrigation system
  • Monitor your water usage on your water bill.
