WEBINAR NOTICE: Urban Conservation Emergency Regulation

From the State Water Board:

On April 21, 2022, the State Water Resources Control Board will hold a public webinar to receive input regarding the development of an emergency regulation to implement specific directives in the Governor’s Executive Order N-7-22 (EO), specifically paragraphs 3 and 4 relating to urban water conservation.

When:                  April 21, 2022, from 1 pm to 3 pm PDT  

Where:            Virtually via Zoom: https://waterboards.zoom.us/j/96501350138?pwd=cnE2Z1gwUFNmR1E4cVNpWlNaK3VzUT09

The purpose of this webinar is to provide an overview of a draft emergency regulation proposal for future consideration by the State Water Board in response to the Governor’s March 28, 2022 Executive Order (EO).  Specifically, the EO directs the State Water Board to consider adopting a new water conservation emergency regulation to prepare for and mitigate the effects of worsening drought conditions. State Water Board staff will discuss topics covered in the proposed emergency regulation, including banning irrigation of and defining “non-functional turf” and requiring all urban water suppliers to implement at least Level 2 of their Water Shortage Contingency Plan actions. The webinar will also give interested parties the opportunity to provide feedback and ask questions about the staff proposals in advance of the State Water Board’s formal emergency rulemaking process.
