Important Drought Notice: The local conservation standard has been adjusted for Golden State Water’s Arden (Arden Manor) and Cordova (Gold River, Rancho Cordova) water systems. Customers may now water outdoor landscapes up to three days per week with new voluntary conservation targets.

System Watering Days (Even) Watering Days (Odd) Reduction Goal November Reduction Total Reduction
Arden Wed, Fri, Sun Tue, Thu, Sat 25% 34% 33%
Cordova Wed, Fri, Sun Tue, Thu, Sat 32% 29% 19%

* Reductions compared to 2013 usage
Total Reductions: June 1, 2016 – Jan. 15, 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 3: Irrigation restrictions from Stage 1; $5 emergency surcharge per CcF over allocation
