Governor Brown Signs Legislation Establishing Statewide Water Efficiency Goals

Sacramento, CA...Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. today signed SB 606 by Senator Robert Hertzberg (D-Van Nuys) and AB 1668 by Assemblymember Laura Friedman (D-Glendale) to help the state better prepare for droughts and climate change by establishing statewide water efficiency standards.




“In preparation for the next drought and our changing environment, we must use our precious resources wisely. We have efficiency goals for energy and cars – and now we have them for water,” said Governor Brown.

SB 606 and AB 1668 establish guidelines for efficient water use and a framework for the implementation and oversight of the new standards, which must be in place by 2022. The two bills strengthen the state’s water resiliency in the face of future droughts with provisions that include:

Establishing an indoor, per person water use goal of 55 gallons per day until 2025, 52.5 gallons from 2025 to 2030 and 50 gallons beginning in 2030.

Creating incentives for water suppliers to recycle water.
Requiring both urban and agricultural water suppliers to set annual water budgets and prepare for drought.

“This is another important step in the Legislature’s focused effort to reengineer water policy away from crisis management and toward a 21st century approach. I want to thank the Governor and his staff for their creative vision, and my colleagues in both houses for their hard work to bring this across the finish line,” said Senator Hertzberg.

“Governor Brown challenged every Californian to embrace water efficiency during the drought, and with his signature on AB 1668, we’ll have the state working collaboratively with local governments and urban water suppliers to put in place water efficiency standards that will help every community focus on sustainability. It’s a balanced approach that puts efficiency first and gives water agencies the flexibility to embrace innovation and tailor their policies to meet the unique needs of their community,” said Assemblymember Friedman.

Today’s legislative action builds on Governor Brown’s ongoing efforts to make water conservation a way of life in California. The state responded to the most recent drought with emergency actions and investments and the advancement of the California Water Action Plan, the Administration’s five-year blueprint for more reliable, resilient water systems to prepare for climate change and population growth.

What most people don't know won't hurt you! Case in point, Southern Ca. Is totally unregulated when it comes to water, my sister lives in Huntington Beach, they, inthe last six year's have built over 5,000 apts. in two different locations in that city with no question raised about where the water would come from to support this reckless building! So. Cal does what they want with no oversight by Sacramento! Time to cut LA loose, our water woes would be solved! They capture little or know runoff, and then come to dip *bleep* Jerry crying because they don't have water and he wants to build tunnels to funnel water to them! If you voter's would pay attention to what the Democrats allow LA together away with you would never vote for a Snowflake again!

The Northwest has nothing to do with Ca. Water problems! Why should they be raped because Snowflakes ignore what is going on, allowing runaway development? Oregon and Washington shouldn't have to send us one drop, that's like telling a guy that drives a Prius that he needs to anti up because his neighbor needs fuel for his gas hog!
