Public Comments regarding Draft Emergency Regulation for Mandatory Urban Water Conservation

Thank you to everyone who provided input on the draft emergency regulations for urban water conservation. The State Water Board received over 200 comments on the proposal, which will be posted below by April 24, 2015.

Due to the large volume of responses, the State Water Board will be unable to respond to each comment individually. However, all comments are being considered during the development of emergency regulations to implement the new restrictions and prohibitions contained in the Governor's April 1st Executive Order.

Please note that this is not a complete list and we will be adding additional comments as we continue to sort through the large number of responses.

  • Deadline to receive comments by: April 22, 2015
