Governor Brown declares drought state of emergency
Vallecitos currently has no local water supply and is therefore 100 percent reliant on imported water deliveries from our wholesalers. As a result, we look to our water wholesaler, the San Diego County Water Authority (SDCWA) for updates on current water supply conditions.
In January 2014, the SDCWA released the following statements:
- From a water supply perspective, San Diego County is in better shape than many other parts of the state, including the Central Valley, but the SDCWA is monitoring water supplies and weather conditions carefully.
- Strong regional water conservation efforts, growing water transfers from the Colorado River and adequate reservoir storage levels in Southern California mean San Diego County should have sufficient water supplies for 2014 even if dry conditions persist.
- SDCWA is not anticipating the need for water shortage allocations in 2014, but it encourages continued water-use efficiency efforts.
Currently, Vallecitos customers are not subject to mandatory water use restrictions but are encouraged to voluntarily conserve.
