In response to recent historic rainfall and snowpack in parts of California, Governor Newsom rescinded the mandate requiring all water utilities to activate their Level 2 water conservation measures.
Helix Water District’s Board of Directors voted to end its Water Shortage Response Level 2, effective April 6, 2023. The district’s permanent water efficiency measures, listed below, remain in effect. These measures are best practices to make sure we're all water-wise, and they are things that most of our customers already do.
Since the 1990s, Helix customers have reduced their water use by almost half through their commitment to using water efficiently. We appreciate your efforts and encourage everyone to keep up the good work.
In fact, over the last 30 years, Helix and the other water utilities in the San Diego region invested $3 billion in water conservation and new water supplies. We have the water we need, even in dry years for decades to come.
