Water Shortage Contingency Plan Stage III Emergency

 On April 25, 2014 Governor Brown issued an Executive Order to Redouble State Drought Actions.  In this order he states, "I call on every city, every community, every Californian to conserve water in every way possible."    On July 8, 2021, Governor Newsom expanded the regional drought state of emergency to include San Luis Obispo County. Our county is in an “Extreme Drought” according to the latest drought monitoring data.

On April 2, 2015 the Los Osos CSD Board of Directors Declared a Stage III Emergency of the Districts Water Shortage Contingency Plan.  

Los Osos is currently under a building moratorium with residents becoming more and more motivated to employ stringent water conservation measures.
