On May 31, 2018, the Governor signed into law Senate Bill 606 (Hertzberg) and Assembly Bill 1668 (Friedman) to improve water conservation and drought. This law authorized the State Water Board, per Water Code section 10609.28, to issue a regulation requiring a wholesale water supplier, an urban retail water supplier, or a distributor of a public water supply, as that term is used in Section 350, to provide a monthly report relating to water production, water use, or water conservation.
The regulation on Monthly Urban Water Conservation Reporting was adopted by the State Water Board at its regularly scheduled April 21, 2020, Board Meeting. As such, the State Water Board ordered staff to work with water suppliers to ensure data are reasonably accurate when reported and updated as needed, and to develop recommendations to streamline reporting to make data more accessible and useful, per requirements of the Water Code section 10609.15, by April 1, 2021, recognizing that sound data management requires continuous improvement.
