Mesa Water District to Vote on New Watering Restrictions

Board Considering 1-Day a Week Outdoor Watering

WHAT: Mesa Water’s Board of Directors will discuss reducing outdoor watering to 1-day a week in response to the season’s shorter days and cooler nights, potential winter rains, and the District’s continued efforts to meet the State’s 20 percent water conservation requirement for our service area. Mesa Water has been on track to achieving the 20 percent mandate since the rules went into effect in May, but conservation has recently fallen short. The baseline from 2013 shows that customers used less water in the fall and winter months two years ago, making it more challenging to achieve the conservation target. The new 1-day a week watering restriction will help the District and its customers meet the state mandate. Please remember to turn off the sprinklers during rain events.

WHO: The public is invited to attend the Mesa Water Board meeting to listen to a presentation, ask questions, and be present for the Board discussion and decision.

WHEN: Thursday, November 12, 2015 at 6:00 p.m.

WHERE:

Mesa Water District
1965 Placentia Avenue
Costa Mesa, CA 92627

Parking is limited. Please plan to arrive early.
