Additional Water-saving Measures Enacted as Region Reacts to Drought

BCVWD implements conservation requirements and penalties for non-compliance

Beaumont-Cherry Valley Water District (BCVWD) is requiring 20% reductions in water use by customers and enforcing penalties in response to statewide emergency drought orders.

At its June 8 meeting, the BCVWD Board of Directors updated an earlier resolution to enact Stage 3 of its Water Shortage Contingency Plan (WSCP). The move restricts irrigation of residential lawns to three days per week between May and October and prohibits the filling of new swimming pools, on top of ongoing measures to cut water waste. Irrigation of decorative grass at commercial, industrial and institutional sites, including HOAs, is also banned by order of the State Water Resources Control Board.

“These actions help safeguard water resources for BCVWD customers as we face ongoing and unrelenting drought,” said Secretary David Hoffman, on behalf of the Board of Directors. “We all need to step up our conservation game and commit to saving more water.”

The District’s water supply is stable and customers will not run out of water this summer. However, significant efficiency efforts are imperative to address continued drought impacts.

Stage 3 measures also include: Watering of residential lawns, parks, sports fields, schools and grass used for recreational purposes or community events is currently limited to eight minutes per watering station, between 8 p.m. and 8 a.m.

  • Watering of residential lawns, parks, sports fields, schools and grass used for recreational purposes or community events is currently limited to eight minutes per watering station, between 8 p.m. and 8 a.m.
  • Addresses ending in an odd number or meters without a physical address may water Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Addresses ending in an even number may water Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday.
  • Trees and plants are not subject to the watering limits.
  • Between November and April, watering lawns is limited to two days per week

Stage 3 includes penalties for violations. Customers will first receive a written notice, followed by increasing financial penalties equal to 10%, 20%, 30% and 50% of the customer’s water bill. Violations after the fifth notice are subject to suspension or termination of water service.

The District constantly monitors weather conditions and the resulting impact on local water supply and demand. BCVWD’s strategic planning, preparation and partnerships have helped the agency realize more than a three-year supply of water stored for emergencies like the current drought. To prepare for water shortages, the District updated its WSCP in October 2021. The plan is designed to preserve water supplies in the Beaumont Basin, which provides water to the District’s service area.

Ditch the Plastic

Ditch the plastic bottles and grab a glass of water instead! Single-use plastics often end up in streets or oceans, harming the environment. Keep our community clean and beautiful by buying less plastic and drinking safe, reliable tap water. #PlasticFreeJuly #BCVWD

“Taking advantage of your great-tasting tap water saves money and helps the environment,” said Treasurer David Hoffman, on behalf of the Board of Directors. “Its easy to reduce plastic use by filling a glass or re-usable water bottle.”

National Water A Flower Day

This Sunday, May 30, is National Water a Flower Day! Remember, choosing low water plants adds year-round color and can save up to 550 gallons of water a year! Get more conservation tips at bcvwd.org/water-conservation-tips. #ConservationTips #BCVWD

“Planting California-native flowers and shrubs in your garden uses less water, saves money and time, and brings all-season beauty to your neighborhood,” said Treasurer David Hoffman, on behalf of the Board of Directors.

Planning an outdoor project

Planning an outdoor project this spring? Call before you dig! Avoid underground hazards and damage to cables and pipes and by calling 811 at least 72 hours in advance of digging.

“Hitting an undergound utility line can cause extensive damage and put you, your family and your neighbors at risk. Calling before you dig is an easy step to take to keep yourself and your community safe,” said Treasurer David Hoffman, on behalf of the Board of Directors.

National Safety Month

BCVWD is ready to help in various emergencies, even if they do not directly impact water service. Last fall, during the 1,000-acre Sandalwood fire in Calimesa, BCVWD ensured the recharge ponds were as full as possible so that firefighting helicopters had access to the water if needed. #NationalSafetyMonth “Our ponds are not usually kept full at that time of year,” said Vice President David Hoffman, on behalf of the Board of Directors. “Our staff worked around the clock to ensure the largest water supply possible was immediately available to help fight the fire.”

Coronavirus operations update

Our offices may be closed, but our operations remain open. As an essential service, our field staff are still working to ensure safe, reliable water is delivered to your home. And, our customer service team is still available to assist you. Visit bcvwd.org for information on how to access services during this time.

“Our staff is on hand to answer questions, respond to emergencies and continue to provide outstanding service,” said Vice President David Hoffman, on behalf of the Board of Directors.
