VCMWD Has Moved to Level 1 Drought Response

California is no stranger to drought; it is a recurrent feature of our climate. On July 8th, 2021 the Governor of California signed Executive Order N-10-21 declaring a regional state of emergency caused by current drought conditions that called on Californians to voluntarily reduce water use by 15% to protect the State’s available water resources.

In response to the drought conditions impacting California, the Valley Center Municipal Water District’s Board of Directors declared a Level 1 Drought Response on October 18, 2021; calling for consumers and businesses to voluntarily reduce their water use and help preserve the region’s storage reserves.
