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

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.
