Nipomo Drought Information

With Governor Brown’s April 2017 announcement that the California drought is over, the District still encourages conservation as a way of life and, of course, “the less you use the more you save.”

The District’s Board reviewed the spring groundwater levels (Key Wells Index) and the District’s Water Shortage Response and Management Plan in July. The District remains in a Stage IV water shortage. No new actions will be enforced. The District is still not accepting new applications for service.
