The District's service area has experienced three consecutive dry years, with water years 2013 and 2014 being some of the worst in recorded history. On February 4, 2014, the EID board of directors declared a Stage 2 Water Warning in our service area. The Board is hopeful that customers can meet the newly mandated 25% conservation target.

EID encourages customers to continue to be mindful of their indoor and outdoor water usage and conserve water in every way possible.

Watering Restrictions

Recycled Water Conservation

Although the District has the ability to produce a large amount of recycled water, we are unable to store recycled water in the winter during low-demand periods. In turn, peak summer recycled water demands must be supplemented with drinking water when demand exceeds production. In addition, as customers reduce interior water use in response to requested drought conservation, less recycled water is produced because less waste water is generated.  Therefore, It is crucial that our recycled water customers also meet the 25 percent conservation requirement to help ensure adequate drinking water supplies for all customers, especially as the drought continues and supplies become more crucial.
