California Drought Emergency
Update-June 6, 2022 – Corona Residents Asked to Help Save Water
On May 23, 2022, Governor Newsom convened a group of local and state water leaders to discuss California’s ongoing drought. City of Corona staff participated and provided the City’s perspective.
On May 24, 2022, the State Water Resources Control Board adopted emergency regulations to address the drought conditions. These regulations require:
A 10-20% reduction in water usage right away
Commercial, industrial, and institutional customers may not water non-functional turf with potable water (this does not apply to sports fields and parks used for recreation)
HOW CAN YOU HELP?
We ask you, our residents and businesses, to help us “Save Water, Save California” by reducing your water usage by 10-20% where possible. The quickest and most effective ways to reduce water are:
Reduce sprinkler run times – try running each station for only 5-7 minutes at a time
Check for leaks in your home and landscaping
Shorten showers and run full loads in the dishwasher and washing machine
Replace older appliances with new high-efficiency appliances (plus, you can get a rebate!)
Remove grass in your yard, or just your parkway, and get a rebate up to $2 per square foot
If you need help reducing your water usage or have questions about the new regulations, please contact us at (951) 736-2234 or at StopTheDrop@CoronaCA.gov.
As a reminder, Corona is dedicated to maintaining and growing our urban forest, and you should continue to water your trees using deep-root watering techniques.
WHAT IS CORONA DOING?
The City of Corona is taking the initiative to reduce our water usage first! Our staff is working hard to ensure our properties are leak-free and our sprinklers are set appropriately. Help be our eyes and ears in the community and report any breaks or leaks using the SeeClickFix app! Many of our parks and sports fields are already using reclaimed water for irrigation.
Please note, we will continue to operate our splash pads for your enjoyment this summer. The splash pads are operated efficiently and follow all State and City guidelines
If there are any homeowners interested in putting together a neighborhood watch, please contact Danesha Flowers at (951) 258-3836.
