(Apple Valley)— Apple Valley Ranchos Water Co. will be hosting a public meeting sanctioned by the California Public Utilities Commission on Friday, June 5th at 6:30 p.m. The meeting will be held at Granite Hills High School, located at 22900 Esaws Road in Apple Valley and will focus on the company’s drought regulations.
“All of our customers are invited to join us at this hearing,” said Norma Armenta, Water Conservation Coordinator for Ranchos Water. “With the new water restrictions, it can seem like a lot to take in. But we want to reassure our customers that we are here to help. There will be a wealth of information provided at the public hearing, which will assist our customers to meet the mandatory water reductions.”
California is currently facing one of the worst droughts on record and on April 1st, Governor Brown imposed water restrictions, which ordered a statewide reduction in urban water use of 25%. Officially, this is the fourth year of the drought and there is a record-low snowpack, but the conditions of the drought have been felt throughout California for far longer.
Ranchos Water has a variety of tools, programs and information to help meet the mandatory water restrictions, such as the Cash for Grass program and the no cost water audits. The State Water Resources Control Board is requiring customers of Apple Valley Ranchos Water Co. to reduce water usage by 28%. This comes after the mandatory statewide water restrictions put in place by Governor Brown in response to the severe drought conditions.
