Mandating water efficiency
The SFPUC reviews these reports and, depending on the accuracy of information provided and the situation, may issue a notification and contact the site.It is important to note that not all visible water use is wasteful or means that a home or building’s overall water use is inefficient.But it does not mean a moratorium on home building. You won’t get the water conservation results you want, but you will adversely affect the economy, and current new home building is already less than half of what is needed to meet existing demand,” said David Cogdill, president/CEO of the California Building Industry Association.

In response to extensive statewide snow and rain and conservation efforts, on April 7, 2017 Governor Brown lifted the state's emergency drought regulations, while maintaining water reporting requirements and prohibitions on wasteful practices.Similarly, in consideration of its water supply conditions, on April 11, 2017 the SFPUC lifted its call for customers to voluntarily reduce water use by 10 percent and ended mandatory reductions for dedicated irrigation customers with interruptible rates.
