Drought Information

January 6, 2016 Update
MMWD customers saved 24% in December compared to the same month in 2013. Cumulative savings for June through December is 21.5%, surpassing our 20% target set by the state.

The current nine-month reporting period continues through February 2016. In November, Governor Brown extended his executive order calling for statewide reductions through October 2016, if the drought persists through this month.

With the arrival of El Niño it may be tempting to ease up on our conservation efforts. But saving water now will help ensure we have enough in our reservoirs this coming summer and beyond. Thank you and keep up the great work!
