As do most California residents, you probably have questions regarding Senate Bill 606 and Assembly Bill 1668 the 55-gallon per person/per day, indoor water-usage legislation. If you have taken the time to read the bill(s) you may be wondering how indoor water usage will be monitored or the number of people living in a household established. There are a number of unknowns regarding the laws but here is what we do know.
· The new laws create water amounts for water districts, NOT individual water customers or businesses.
· The laws do not set any water use standards on individual customers, nor do they impose fines on individuals.
· The new law(s) don’t go into effect immediately but ramp up over time.January Newletter
