55 Gallons a Day
Jun 11, 2018
While the State Water Resources Control Board has restricted pumping, both SWP and CVP allocations remain lower than they should with reservoir conditions. Restricted pumping at this point is about meeting California’s water quality standards in the Delta. We will likely hear about fish when it comes to water temperature in the Sacramento River. This will also effect the delivery of water if and when the Sac River Temp Plans criteria are not met. The lower the level kept in San Luis Reservoir, the less water you’ll have next year. This is surface water. The lack of this water guarantees less acres farmed and less aquifer recharge. But that’s not all.
AB1668 is done. It is now law. Until January 1, 2025, you are allowed 55 gallons per day of indoor water use. From January 1, 2025 to December 31, 2029, you are allowed 52.5 gallons per day. After January 1, 2030, it declines to 50 gallons per day. SGMA is coming. A very real push toward 100\% renewable energy is in the works.
Is it possible we will all use less than 55 gallons of water per day and all have solar? No.
What will happen is you will pay much higher costs for two main reasons. One will be your penalty for not complying. The other will be your portion to cover the costs of the “disadvantaged.”
Soon, you will become the “disadvantaged.” They will run out of other people’s money. This is socialism and is the fastest way to drive taxpayers out of California. Big changes in the next 2-5 years.
Felicia Marcus, chair of the State Water Resources Control Board, explained this is happening, “So that everyone in California is at least integrating efficiency into our preparations for climate change.”
They are killing California, and they’re doing it quickly.
