In response to the Governor’s April 1 drought emergency proclamation, South Feather Water and Power Agency is asking its customers to implement measures within their households and businesses to reduce per-capita water use by 25%. Customers are also being asked to limit their outdoor irrigation of ornamental landscapes and turf to every other day.
On April 1, 2015, the Agency had approximately 115,000 acre-feet of water in storage. End-of-year storage will be 60,000 acre-feet. Water consumed by customers for all purposes in 2015 will be less than 20,000 acre-feet. Conserved water remains in storage for the exclusive use of Agency customers.
