Water shortage declared in Grover Beach; people asked to limit use

After a review of annual rainfall and other information, a water shortage has been declared in the City of Grover Beach.

On Monday, the City Council declared the State II Water Shortage condition, which is a moderate voluntary measure that asks staff to continue water consumption reduction methods.

It also encourages businesses or people that live in the area to conserve and limit their water use by not using potable water for street cleaning, not washing sidewalks or roadways if another reasonable alternative is available, and not using it for construction purposes if other methods are available.

Residents and businesses in Grover Beach are also encouraged to not use water from a fire hydrant unless authorized, to maintain water levels in private pools, but not refill existing pools, and to use quick-acting shut-off nozzles on hoses when washing vehicles, sidewalks, and driveways.

To find out about other methods encouraged to save water or for more information, call the City of Grover Beach Public Works Department at (805) 473-4520 or the Administrative Services Department at (805) 473-4550.

The City of Grover Beach receives water from groundwater wells and the Lopez Lake Water Reservoir.
Officials say a moderate water shortage is approaching due to below average rainfall and shortage levels in Lopez Lake.
