NOTICE OF PROPOSED REGULATORY ACTION: Proposed urban water conservation reporting regulations
From the State Water Resources Control Board:
The State Water Board proposes to establish California Code of Regulations, title 23, division 3, chapter 3.5 on Conservation and the Prevention of Waste and Unreasonable Use and within this chapter, article 2, on Reporting. This Article is proposed to provide for ongoing monthly reporting by urban water suppliers consistent with emergency regulation requirements in the California Code of Regulations, title 23, division 3, chapter 2, article 22.5, sections 865 and 866 that expired November 25, 2017, by operation of law. Since that date, many, but not all, urban water suppliers have voluntarily submitted monthly reports. The reporting that is proposed would be largely consistent with prior reporting requirements that have expired.
The State Water Board is implementing, interpreting and making specific:
Authority: Sections 275, 1058, 10609.28, Water Code.
References: Article X, Section 2, California Constitution; Section 51201, Government Code; Sections 102, 104, 105, 350, 1122, 1123, 1124, 1846, 1846.5, 10617, and 10632, Water Code.
A public hearing has not been scheduled for this proposed action. However, as provided in Government Code section 11346.8, any interested person, or his or her duly authorized representative, may request a public hearing if the request is submitted in writing in the manner described below to the State Water Board no later than 15 days prior to the close of the written comment period.
