Area Water Shortages
On June 16, 2014, the City Council declared a Stage III Water Shortage for the City of Grover Beach. A Stage III Declaration is a severe-mandatory measure that requires all water customers to reduce their water usage by 10%. Additionally, a number of prohibitions that had previously been "voluntary" during the two years of the Stage II Water Shortage Declaration are now "mandatory". The Stage III Declaration will also provide the City the authority to impose penalties for failure to comply with water reduction or use prohibitions. These prohibitions are outlined in the Public Notice Regarding the Stage III Water Shortage (PDF). For more information, please see - Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) (PDF).
We encourage you to review the water conservation tips listed below and take advantage of City-sponsored programs to save money on your water bill, conserve water, and help create jobs for local contractors.
