VIDEO. From the Coastside County Water District (CCWD) meeting Tuesday, October, 12th, 2021 at 7:00pm by Zoom. Cathleen Brennan from Water Resources presents.
California asked residential Californians to reduce consumption by 15% voluntarily in July, 2021.
SFPUC (San Francisco Public Utilities Commission) intends to declare an Emergency Water Supply Emergency on November 7th, 2021. IF SFPUC declares water supply emergency CCWD’s water allotment will be curtailed to 0.92 million gallons per day. Currently, we are averaging 1.8 million gallons per day. Because we have had no rain, local water sources are dry. So, now 100% of our water is coming from the SFPUC and the Hetch Hetchy resevoir.
If the water supply emergency is declared, Coastside County Water District will have its allocation curtailed by 50%.
From the 10/12/21 Staff Report
The District relies on purchased water from the SFPUC Regional Water System to meet the water demand of its service area. The SFPUC has been asking wholesale customers to implement voluntary reductions in water purchases by 15 percent as of July 12, 2021. SFPUC’s request for voluntary reductions in water purchases aligns with Governor Newsom’s July 8th Executive (N-10-21) Order that calls on all Californians to voluntarily reduce their water use by 15 percent from calendar year 2020. The table below provides a timeline of milestones.
Staff is preparing to enter Stage 2 – Water Shortage Warning – of the District’s Water Shortage Contingency Plan. Stage 2 begins mandatory reductions in water consumption. Stage 2 is described as up to a 20 percent shortage of water for Coastside County Water District. Going to the Water Shortage Warning is based on the existing dry conditions and not having access to any local sources. It is also based on the SFPUC declaring a water supply emergency on November 9th and the District not meeting our voluntary (15%) goals for reductions in water use. Staff will bring to the Board an ordinance and staff report requesting to implement a Water Shortage Warning in November after the SFPUC’s November 9th meeting.
