At our April 11 Board Meeting, the CVWD Board of Directors adopted a resolution to rescind the Level 3 Water Shortage Declaration. This action means restricted watering days are over and CVWD is no longer requesting customers to reduce their water use. “Recent winter storms have given the State a much-needed break from severe drought conditions,” stated CVWD Board President Randall Reed. “Because of our community's efforts and CVWD’s commitment to investing in local water supplies, we were able to get through the drought together.”
The Board’s decision was made following Governor Newsom’s Executive Order on March 24, 2023, which allows individual water agencies the flexibility to adjust their Drought Contingency Plans. The Governor’s Executive Order did not rescind the Drought Emergency entirely, and certain water uses that are considered to be wasteful remain prohibited, such as using potable water to irrigate ornamental turf in commercial properties and more.
