Countywide Water Conservation Program

On October 27, 2015, the Board of Supervisors adopted Resolution 2015-288, which established the Countywide Water Conservation Program (CWWCP) in response to the declining water levels in the Nipomo Mesa Water Conservation Area (NMWCA) part of Santa Maria Groundwater Basin), Los Osos Groundwater Basin (LOGWB), and the Paso Robles Groundwater Basin (PRGWB). A key strategy of the CWWCP is to ensure all new construction and new or expanded agriculture will offset its predicted water use by reducing existing water use on other properties within the same water basin. The CWWCP has created services within each the NMWCA, LOGWB, and PRGWB, to assist with water conservation.

To determine whether your property is within one of the three basins offering water conservation services, launch the property information application and look up your property by assessor parcel number or address.
