New rulemaking to create new water use efficiency standards for commercial, industrial, and institutional water use will be developed this year and adopted no later than 2021, but perhaps sooner. On Friday, April 7, 2017 Governor Brown announced the drought officially over and finalized his plan for “Making Water Conservation a California Way of Life”. This plan has implications for businesses and agencies with regards to water conservation standards and possible mandatory measures as well as enforcement. The Department of Water Resources, together with the State Water Resources Control Board, will be developing the regulations to meet the objectives set forth in this conservation plan. There will be opportunity for stakeholder comments and Alta experts will keep you informed as the rulemaking moves forward.
