Important Drought Notice: The local conservation standard has been adjusted for Golden State Water’s Apple Valley (Apple Valley, Lucerne Valley) water systems. Customers may now water outdoor landscapes up to three days per week with new voluntary conservation targets.

* Reductions compared to 2013 usage
Total Reductions: June 1, 2016 – Jan. 8, 2017
Chart Key: Meeting Goal / Not Meeting Goal

This conservation standard is aligned with the State Water Board’s shift to locally-developed conservation strategies, which challenges water providers to implement conservation policies and supply investments to address the ongoing drought emergency. These standards could be revised pending the state’s verification of self-certification data and developments related to local water supply conditions and conservation.

Stage 1 (current stage): Customers may water outdoor landscapes up to three days per week. All watering should occur before 8 am or after 7 pm,  and should not exceed 10 minutes per station.

Stage 3: Irrigation restrictions from Stage 1; $5 emergency surcharge per CcF over allocation
