On June 13, 2016, the Hillsborough City Council ended mandatory water rationing and implemented voluntary water conservation. Thank you for your efforts and cooperation in meeting the State’s mandatory 36% reduction requirement last year. We exceeded the targets imposed on us by the State, and could not have done it without everyone’s help.
While the current drought emergency is over, there’s never enough water to waste. It is important to note that water waste prohibitions remain, so please avoid over- irrigation and water runoff. The voluntary water conservation period extends through January 31, 2017, with a goal of saving 10% based on 2013 usage.
The Town will update its drought webpage (http://www.hillsborough.net/443/Drought-Info) to provide residents with up-to-date information about ongoing water policies. You may also call the Town’s drought hotline at (650) 375-7584 for more information.Tips on how to conserve water can be found below.
