The County has signed a contract with Maddaus Water Management Inc. to prepare a study to update water usage estimates for urban and rural residences sourcing water from the Los Osos Groundwater Basin, propose new water conservation measures for the retrofit‐to‐build program, and estimate remaining water savings potential for the community. The project schedule has been delayed due to difficulties obtaining historic consumption data. Once this data is available, the estimated project timeline is 3 months. Updates will be posted on this website as available.
The Phase 1 analysis of the Los Osos Water Offset Study will be completed in November 2022 and Phase 2 commences thereafter. A technical memorandum describing the Phase 1 analysis will be posted to the project website once available. The entirety of the Los Osos Water Offset Study is projected to be completed March 2023.
