San Gabriel Valley Water Company (“San Gabriel”) filed a request with the California Public Utilities Commission (“Commission”) to change the Current Activated Stage in Schedule 14.1, Staged Water Shortage Surcharges and Penalties, from Stage 2 mandatory water conservation and drought surcharges to Stage 1 with voluntary water conservation targets and no drought surcharges (Advice Letter 480). The primary effect of this change is to eliminate the existing drought surcharges and penalties currently applicable under Stage 2 of San Gabriel’s Schedule 14.1. However, the State’s call for water use efficiency and conservation remains loud and clear. Because severe drought conditions remain throughout California, San Gabriel asks that customers voluntarily maintain their reduced water use by the mandated water use reduction goal of 14% from 2013 levels set by the State Water Resources Control Board. In addition, the following water use restrictions continue to apply under Stage 1:
Even Address: Monday, Wednesday, and Friday
All Other Addresses: Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday
- All outdoor irrigation is prohibited between the hours of 9:00 am. and 5:00 p.m. on any day.
- Watering duration is limited to 10 minutes of watering per station per day.
- Notwithstanding the foregoing restrictions, when a city, county, or other local government agency adopts restrictions on the days or the hours of the day that customers may irrigate which are different than those adopted by the utility, the utility may instead choose to enforce the city’s, county’s, or local government agency’s restriction in place of its own restrictions.
