Mandatory Water Conservation Rescinded

At the June 15 city council meeting, council adopted a resolution rescinding mandatory water conservation resolution 091-15, established on July 15, 2015 (25% drought management plan). The city will transition to encouraging conservation and establish permanent prohibitions, however, its proposed fines for water waste remain in effect. The Temporary Pricing Adjustment of $.50 per hundred cubic feet (748 gallons) of water used will terminate starting with the first monthly billing cycle on June 30, 2016 and the first bi-monthly billing cycle starting July 12, 2016.

Martinez residents have done a great job conserving water this past year. There was over a 30% overall reduction in water use. Many residents took advantage of incentives and rebates. CCWD and city staffs are confident that by implementing long-term water conservation there will be adequate water supplies to meet customer needs over the next three years.
