The City of Chino Hills remains under a Stage II Water Conservation Alert, and residents are reminded to continue their efforts to conserve water.
What is a Stage II Water Conservation Alert?
Stage II is a Moderate Conservation Alert and is declared when it is anticipated that the water supply may be reduced by up to 10%. The California Department of Water Resources has indicated that the Metropolitan Water District (MWD), one provider of imported water deliveries to Chino Hills, will not receive any water from the State Water Project which originates from the Sacramento Delta. At this time, water deliveries from MWD are expected to continue because the agency has made significant progress in infrastructure to store water. However, due to California's drought conditions, it is a MUST to conserve water today and for our future!
The Stage II Water Alert does not apply to construction projects or areas where recycled water, flowing through purple pipes, is used. Restrictions that prohibit watering landscaped areas between 9:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. (except where purple pipes deliver recycled water to landscaped areas) and the hosing down of driveways are among the list of eight items designed to eliminate water waste.
