Please Remember to Continue Saving Water!

Welcome to Orchard Dale Water District

 
 
 
 PROGRESSING THROUGH
"EL NIÑO"
 Challenges With or Without Rain
 

The Board of Directors and Orchard Dale Water District Staff wish to express our gratitude to our customers and say, "THANK YOU!"

Our Governor's call for water conservation of 25 percent has been a challenge for many Californians.  Relative to location, some people have not had drinking water at their faucets while others have had plenty.

To date, Orchard Dale Water District has reached our conservation goal every month since the beginning of the drought.  The latest report of November 2015 marked a conservation amount of 30.4 percent, which was above and beyond the 12 percent standard set by the State Water Board.  Our cumulative savings to date is 22.3 percent.  As a community we are performing quite well in response to our drought mandate.  State water use has cut back by 26.3 percent, placing the State ahead of plan by only 1.3 percent.  The State is trying to save 1.2 million acre-feet of water.  To date, California is at 84 percent of the goal.

The current Executive Order was set to end February 2016.  However, in November of 2015, Governor Brown issued another Executive Order directing the State Water Board to extend the conservation efforts through October 2016.  The actual adjustments or modifications to the new Executive Order are said to be announced February 2, 2016.

EL NIÑO has improved our Sierra snowpack levels and hopefully will soon exceed expectations.  The outcome of EL NIÑO is questionable, and has plenty of opinions as to its resolve.  The District has provided information, check under the resources heading to the left, to get us through this EL NIÑO winter.

Drought conservation is still upon us through the EL NIÑO winter; please continue your efforts as we wait for further details.

Again, on behalf of the Board of Directors and Staff, we say, "THANK YOU!"

Best Regards,
Edward A. Castaneda
General Manager
