Use this number to report water waste situations, to find out the current water conservation regulations, ways to conserve water, or information on rebate programs. When reporting water waste, please leave a detailed message stating the address, time of occurrence, and the day of the week. We all must do our part to conserve our most precious resource, and even more so during this drought emergency.

Governor Brown Directs First Ever Statewide Mandatory Water Reductions


For the first time in state history, the Governor has directed the State Water Resources Control Board to implement mandatory water reductions in cities and towns across California to reduce water usage by 25 percent. This savings amounts to approximately 1.5 million acre-feet of water over the next nine months, or nearly as much as is currently in Lake Oroville.

To save more water now, the order will also:

  • Replace 50 million square feet of lawns throughout the state with drought tolerant landscaping in partnership with local governments.
  • Direct the creation of a temporary, statewide consumer rebate program to replace old appliances with more water and energy efficient models;
  • Require campuses, golf courses, cemeteries and other large landscapes to make significant cuts in water use; and
  • Prohibit new homes and developments from irrigating with potable water unless water-efficient drip irrigation systems are used, and ban watering of ornamental grass on public street medians.
