DECLARES A STAGE 3 WATER SHORTAGE CONDITION
IN ACCORDANCE WITH CALIFORNIA WATER CODE SECTION 350 AND GROVER BEACH MUNICIPAL CODE SECTION 7234
On Monday, September 26, 2022, the Grover Beach City Council adopted Resolution 22-40 declaring a Stage 3 Water Shortage condition. This action assigns a monthly baseline amount of water (water budget) for all residential customers, requires a 20% reduction of water consumption based on the established baseline and issues mandatory citywide prohibitions on water wasting.
Your household's baseline water use, or "water budget" is established using your water consumption from May 2020 to April 2021. Every residential water customer is required to reduce their "water budget" by 20%.
If the circumstances within your household have changed since the baseline year, your “water budget” may be modified. Circumstances could include: your home being vacant during a portion of the baseline year; substantial changes in the number of persons residing in your residence has occurred; or you have special circumstances affecting your water use. If any of these situations pertain to your household, please complete and return the Water Budget Increase Request form, via email, to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have any additional questions regarding the Stage 3 Declaration, please contact the Public Works Administrative office at 805-473-4530.
