ALERT - On August 12, 2014, the Anaheim City Council approved five mandatory water conservation measures, pursuant to the State Water Resources Control Board’s emergency drought regulations.
Update on Water Supplies
Calendar year 2013 was the driest year on record in California, and as a result Governor Brown declared drought State of Emergency in January 2014, asking Californians to voluntarily reduce their water consumption by 20 percent. In July 2014, the State Water Resources Control Board approved an emergency regulation to further address the ongoing need to significantly enhance water conservation efforts throughout the state. In response, in August 2014, the Anaheim City Council approved five mandatory water conservation measures.
The Anaheim Public Utilities will continue to monitor the water supply situation and work with our regional water supply agencies (Metropolitan Water District of Southern California and Orange County Water District) regarding overall supply reliability for Anaheim and the region. Water storage reserves are adequate for the coming months, but a continued drought will likely prompt even greater water use restrictions.
The Utilities has elevated its aggressive public outreach campaign and water conservation programs, and will continue to further drought-proof the water supply portfolio through water recycling and other efforts. Learn more...
