2012 Annual Drinking Water Quality Report
California is facing the most significant water crisis in its history. After experiencing two years of drought and the driest spring in recorded history, water reserves are extremely low. With the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta ecosystem near collapse, court-ordered restrictions on water deliveries from the Delta have reduced supplies from the state's two largest water systems by twenty to thirty percent.
Drought conditions in the Colorado River Basin and a Sierra snowpack that is now dangerously unreliable due to global climate change, is leaving many communities throughout California facing mandatory restrictions on water use and/or rising water bills. If the drought continues into next year, the results could be catastrophic to our economy.
In June 2008, the Governor issued Executive Order S-06-08 declaring a statewide drought, which directed his state agencies and departments to take immediate action to address the serious drought conditions and water delivery reductions that exist in California. He also issued a Central Valley State of Emergency Proclamation for nine Central Valley counties (Sacramento, San Joaquin, Stanislaus, Merced, Madera, Fresno, Kings, Tulare and Kern) to address urgent water needs.
In February 2009 the City Council took a proactive approach to conserve our precious resources by implementing a reasonable but mandatory water conservation plan. Ordinance No. 746 water conservation plan ranges from a Standard Conservation Alert to a Severe Conservation Alert. Stage II alert shall remain is effect throughout the year unless an increased conservation alert (Severe) is necessary based on water conditions.
