Drought and Continued Conservation

Dry and cracked earth

In response to drought conditions, the State Water Resources Control Board directed all water utilities in California to implement their Level 2 water conservation measures under an emergency regulation. Although some parts of the state received abundant rain and snow in early 2023, the emergency regulation is still currently in effect.

Helix’s Level 2 water conservation measures are listed below. We are pleased to report that most of our customers already use these measures in their landscapes.

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 like this one, for decades to come.

The state also banned watering of decorative (non-functional) lawns at commercial, industrial and institutional properties, including homeowner association common areas. This does not apply to residential lawns, sports fields, school fields or areas regularly used for human recreational purposes or for civic or community events.

The state may require mandatory conservation if drought conditions worsen. check out how to Save Water and Money for landscaping and irrigation tips, rebates and more to help you save water.
