Gov. Brown Lifts California's Emergency Drought Declaration, Retains Prohibition on Wasteful Practices

April 19, 2017 

On Friday, April 7, Gov. Jerry Brown declared an end to California's historic drought, lifting emergency orders that had forced Californians to stop running sprinklers as often and encouraged them to remove thirsty lawns during the state's driest four-year period on record.

As a result, on April 19, the City Council/IWA Board unanimously voted to lift the Drought Penalty Surcharge and Stage II Alert. Nevertheless, prohibitions remain on wasteful practices.
