  • Turf Rebate Program
    Mission Springs Water District (MSWD) has implemented a Turf Rebate Program to incentivize the removal of high water consuming turf grass (and/or significant groundcover plant materials that are similar in water demand) and replace it with desert-friendly, water-efficient landscaping - Click here to access the program documents page for more information.
  • Drought Mandate
    On November 17, 2016, the MSWD Board of Directors acted to remove restrictions on watering days for outdoor landscaping by rescinding Resolution No. 2015-06. Customers are now permitted to water on any day.

    The Board also enacted Resolution No. 2016-25 which continues time of day watering restrictions to before 6 a.m. and after 6 p.m. Restrictions issued by the Governor and codified in CA State Water Board Emergency Regulation, Resolution No. 2016-0029 are also still in effect.
  • Emergency Regulation For Statewide Urban Water Consumption
  • Self-Certified Conservation Standard
    On May 18, 2016, the State Water Board adopted an emergency water conservation regulation that replaces the February 2 emergency regulation. The May 2016 regulation requires locally developed conservation standards based upon each agency’s specific circumstances. It replaces the prior percentage reduction-based water conservation standard with a localized “stress test” approach. Each water supplier is required to evaluate its supply portfolio and self-certify the accuracy of its information; the State Water Board assigns each supplier a mandatory conservation standard equal to the percentage deficiency the supplier identifies in its supply under certain specified assumptions. See this webpage Water Conservation Portal for more information on the May 2016 emergency regulation. The new conservation standards take effect in June and remain in effect until the end of January 2017.
