City of Oceanside Current Drought Status Information

Summary of Governor's Message and City of Oceanside Response
Friday, January 17, 2014

Governor Brown requests a voluntary 20% reduction in water use. What can Oceanside residents do?

With 2013 being the driest year in California's recorded history, and an expectation of a third consecutive dry year in 2014, Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. proclaimed a State of Emergency on January 17, 2014 to focus Californians’ attention on the need to conserve water. The Governor called for a voluntary statewide 20 percent reduction in water use.

At this time, there are no mandatory cutbacks or drought restrictions in Oceanside.  Customers are urged to use water wisely and to be proactive with their conservation practices so that water is not wasted.
