Outdoor Water Conservation
On May 17, 2016 the County of Tulare established a Staged Water Conservation Program, which can be found in Chapter 9 of Part VIII of the Ordinance Code of Tulare County. This ordinance currently applies to County operated Zone of Benefit water systems in Delft Colony, Yettem, and the Seville Water Company. The ordinance was developed in response to the severe drought and to comply with requirements and recommendations in state regulations, including CCR § 865(g).
Upon adopting the Staged Water Conservation Program, the Board of Supervisors set the Water Conservation Stage at Stage 3 for the County operated Zone of Benefit water systems in Delft Colony and Yettem and set the Water Conservation Stage at Stage 4 for the area served by the Seville Water Company. These are mandatory compliance measures and requires all persons using County potable water to observe the conservation measures.
