June 6 Deadline Approaching for Urban Water Supplier Survey

State Water Board Requests Updated Information on Drought Actions

The State Water Board is asking urban water suppliers in California to complete a survey on actions instituted to reduce water use. Responses are requested by June 6.

The survey fulfills one part of Gov. Jerry Brown’s April 25 executive order calling on California to redouble drought actions. The executive order directed the State Water Board to request an update from urban water suppliers on their actions to reduce water use and the effectiveness of those efforts.

The State Water Board began sending email invitations to the online survey on May 23. About 400 urban water suppliers are being queried. A copy of the survey questions is available at the State Water Board website here.

The State Water Board is expected to hear a report on urban water conservation efforts during a June 17 meeting. Officials said the survey responses will be “used to assess statewide conservation efforts, and their effectiveness to date, and will inform the State Water Board’s consideration of emergency regulations.”

If you have questions about the survey or the email invitation, please contact the State Water Board’s Max Gomberg at (916) 322-3052 or Rafael Maestu (916) 341-5894, or send an email to droughtsurvey@waterboards.ca.gov.
