Drought Status

To report a violation of the water use restrictions, please use the Public Water Use Violation Reporting form.

All water suppliers, including Del Oro, are required to implement MANDATORY CONSERVATION to continue the Governor-mandated statewide conservation requirement. Please refer to your district below for further information.
  (This requirement was rescinded for most of California on 4/26/2017. Please click on the link for your district below for more information.) 

Del Oro is closely monitoring the status of the drought. This page will be updated as we get additional news regarding specific water supplies in each District.


Effective April 2015, Del Oro has implemented Rule 14.1: Water Shortage Contingency Plan. All Del Oro Water Company customers are asked for their cooperation in conserving water as ordered by Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr.  He has proclaimed (and extended) a State of Emergency and has mandated a continued statewide reduction in water use.  Please click on your district, below, to view the notices which were enclosed with all July 2016 bills describing specific measures customers should take to conserve water. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated.

On April 26, 2017, the State Water Resources Control Board voted to rescind the water supply stress test requirements and remaining mandatory conservation standards for urban water suppliers.  The action was in response to Governor Brown’s announcement earlier this month ending the drought state of emergency and transitioning to a permanent framework for making water conservation a California way of life. Current prohibitions against wasteful water use practices and requirements for monthly water use reporting remain in place. The current prohibitions against wasteful water use practices include outdoor watering during or within 48 hours after a rain event; hosing down a sidewalk instead of using a broom or a brush; and overwatering a landscape to where water is running off onto the sidewalk or into the gutter.
