Water Conservation Period begins on May 1st.

For all groundwater users within the BSEACD, May 1st marks the beginning of our Water Conservation Period. This is not to be confused with an official drought declaration but is actually a calendar driven period from May to September of every year to recognize the time when water demand goes up and natural rainfall amounts go done.

During this period, the District requests that all BSEACD permittees and groundwater users be mindful of your water use and conserve wherever possible. Recommended steps for achieving the voluntary 10% water use reductions are outlined in permittee Drought Contingency Plans.
