Current Water Use

Background

Executive Order N-10-21, adopted by the Governor in July 2021, asked all Californians to voluntarily reduce their water use by 15% compared to their 2020 water use.

Executive Order N-7-22, adopted by the Governor on March 28, 2022, includes a requirement that each urban water supplier that has submitted a water shortage contingency plan to the Department of Water Resources implement, at a minimum, the shortage response actions adopted under section 10632 of the Water Code for a shortage level of up to twenty percent (Level 2), by a date to be set by the Water Board.

The City of Shasta Lake declared Stage 2 of its Water Shortage Contingency Plan on March 2, 2022, which requires up to a 20% reduction in overall water use. Below is a table showing the increase or decrease in water use for each month, based on the water year which runs from March to February. Check back each month to see how customers are responding to the water shortage.
