Dry weather conditions are affecting just about everyone in California and another agency is now joining the list of those reviewing conservation plans. Leaders of the Placer County Water Agency are now preparing contingency plans to deal with the long spell of dry weather.
"It looks pretty certain that dry weather patterns are going to persist for at least another 30 days, and that puts us into critical water shortage conditions," said spokesman Einar Maisch, who added that if that's the case, prepare for a request to curb your use.
"If conditions persist, we are going to be asking our customers to reduce their water use, to cut their outside irrigation, be more efficient with their interior water use, and to cut their water consumption by 25%," said Maisch.
PCWA members are also reviewing water shortage actions being taken in other areas, including Folsom, where a 20% use reduction has already been imposed.
