Water Supply Update for Rowland Water District Customers

Rowland Water District customers are not currently subject to drought restrictions. Our water resources team continually monitors water supply conditions and will enact appropriate measures if they become necessary.

While some surrounding districts may activate elevated levels of their drought response plans that call for curbing use, our supply picture remains stable. Supplies have improved thanks to recent winter storms that replenished snowpack in Northern California, the main source of our water. The snow will melt in the spring and help refill reservoirs that are part of the State Water Project.

While the District Board of Directors is not currently mandating conservation, we are asking customers to continue using water as efficiently as possible, whenever possible. That means taking steps such as adjusting or repairing sprinklers to avoid runoff, not hosing off hard surfaces, and only using a hose with an automatic shutoff nozzle to wash cars. You can find more water-saving tips below and on our conservation website at yourwaterfootprint.org.

In the event of supply deficiencies, the District has guidelines for a response in our Water Conservation and Water Shortage Contingency Plan.
