Important drought information
On April 7th, 2015 the City of Redding adopted a new Water Shortage Contingency Plan and until May of 2016, the City was implementing Stage 2. Because of customer efforts and good precipitation during the winter, we have received a 100% water supply allocation from the Central Valley Project. Therefore, we are easing restrictions and moving to Stage 1. Voluntary conservation measures are in place, with a few exceptions - State mandated prohibitions not included in our current Plan.
