On December 15th, small water conservation reports are due.

Reports are a requirement under the State Water Resources Control Board’s drought emergency water conservation regulation for urban and community water systems that have fewer than 3,000 service connections and produce less than 3,000 acre-feet of water annually.  If you are unsure whether your company must submit this report, click here.

The required information includes:

  • Total potable water production by month for January through December 2013 (baseline calendar year)
  • Total potable water production by month for December 2015 through November 2016 (12 months starting with December 2015)
  • Any actions taken by the supplier to encourage or require its customers to conserve water

Even if you only have partial data, you must submit the report. There is a comment box on the form that you can use to explain your responses.

NOTE:  It is important to gather all required information ahead of time, as the online form does not allow you to save changes.  Should you need to revise your report, you will need to re-submit the form in its entirety.
