JCSD Residents Save 155,828,000 Gallons of Water in March

After a relatively dry winter, Jurupa Community Services District (JCSD) residents turned off their taps when Mother Nature provided some much-needed rain. Residents used 155,828,000 less gallons (26 percent) when compared to the same month in 2013. “Water conservation remains important because our groundwater basins have not had time to recover from the 2011-2017 drought,” said General Manager Todd Corbin. “We are heading into the hottest time of the year and every drop counts. The water we save today will be available for us tomorrow.”

JCSD relies solely on local groundwater stored naturally in underground aquifers. Groundwater levels dropped during the drought, and it will take years, before it recovers to pre-drought levels. For this reason, JCSD has remained at Level 2 of the District’s Water Shortage Contingency Plan. JCSD is asking customers to continue to save water by following mandatory measures including:

• Watering only between 8:00 p.m. - 8:00 a.m., four days per week, and for no more than 10 minutes per station per day.
• Repairing all leaks.
• Using shutoff nozzles to wash vehicles.
• No hosing down of hard surfaces like driveways and sidewalks.
• No run off from properties to sidewalks, streets, gutters or storm drains.

Enforcement of these measures will resume over the summer months to protect your community’s water supply. For more information about conservation programs, rebates, water-use tips, and landscape classes, visit Jurupa Community Services District website at www.jcsd.us or call (951) 727-3521.
