  1. California Department of Water Resources Urban Water Use Efficiency Programs Vicki Lake, Unit Supervisor Contra Costa Climate Leaders Workshop Division of Statewide Water Management May 9, 2016 Vicki.Lake@water.ca.gov

  2. Current drought not over • Expected to be more frequent and persistent • Executive Order B-37-16 sets stage for creating new long-term water use efficiency framework California Droughts

  3. California Water Action Plan, Action #1: Make Conservation a California Way of Life Urban Water Use Efficiency Programs

  4. 2015 plans due on July 1, 2016 • Urban Water Management Plan Guidebook • Executive Order B-37-16 (May 9, 2016) • New permanent water use targets • Monthly data reporting • Strengthen requirements for water shortage contingency plans Urban Water Management Planning

  5. Model Water Efficient Landscape Ordinance • Independent Technical Panel • Landscape Stakeholder Committee • Workshops Efficient Landscapes

  6. Water suppliers submit water loss audits to DWR as addendum to 2015 UWMPs • Annual audit submittal beginning in 2017, with data validation requirement to identify errors in data • Water Loss Collaborative provides technical assistance in completing audits Water Loss Audit Program

  7. $25M turf removal • $12M toilet retrofit • $10M CalConserve revolving fund Incentive Programs

  8. State Water BoardEmergency Regulation for Urban Water Conservation Kathy Frevert Office of Research, Planning, and Performance May 11, 2016 http://saveourwater.com

  9. Percent of Average Precipitation Drought is not over Regional precipitation disparities in 2015-16 2015-16 Water Year 10/1/2015 – 4/30/2016

  10. Executive Order B-37-16 • Use water more wisely • Eliminate water waste • Strengthen local drought resilience • Improve agricultural water use efficiency

  11. Urban Water Conservation Emergency Regulation • Proposed regulatory language – comments due by noon May 16 – recommend earlier • State Water Board adoption hearing – May 18 • www.waterboards.ca.gov (search for “conservation portal”) • Proposed regulation, Fact sheets, regulatory documents

  12. Emergency Regulation Components • Conservation standards for Urban Water Suppliers • Prohibited water uses and other end-user requirements • Enforcement Provisions • Requirements for “self-supplied” Commercial, Industrial, and Institutional Users • Requirements for smaller suppliers • Reporting Requirements

  13. Requirements for Urban Water Suppliers Achieve a Conservation Standard May 2015 Emergency Regulation: • Reduce potable water use between 4 and 36 percent, based on summer 2014 residential gallons per capita per day (R-GPCD) May 2016 Proposed Emergency Regulation • Assess supply reliability if faced with 3 additional years of drought • Set conservation standard commensurate with level of shortage. Monthly Reporting

  14. Prohibited Uses of Potable Water • Irrigating turf in street medians Watering trees is important! • Irrigating ornamental landscapes during and 48 hours after rainfall • Washing driveways or sidewalks • Runoff from landscapes • Washing cars without a shutoff nozzle • Fountains that don’t recirculate

  15. Statewide Cumulative Savings(June 2015 – March 2016) • 1,295,703 acre-feet (422.2 billion gallons) of water saved • Savings is enough to provide 6.5 million Californians (17% of state population) with water for one year

  16. Statewide Monthly AverageResidential Gallons per Capita per Day(June 2015 – March 2016) • Average Statewide March 2016 R-GPCD = 66

  17. Closing Thoughts… • Accrued years of water deficit, drought not over • Changes to Emergency Regulation • Conservation standards determined by assessment of local supply-demand • Bd hearing on May 18 • Need to use water efficiently, conserve, and stop leaks contact: Kathy.Frevert@Waterboards.ca.gov (916) 322-5274 www.waterboards.ca.gov Search for “Conservation Portal” http://saveourwater.com
