State Water Resources Control Board Emergency Regulations and Mandatory Conservation

June 15, 2016

As an urban water wholesaler, the City of Cerritos is required to make projections about how much water the City expects to deliver to its retail water suppliers under a three-dry-year scenario. The following contains water supply information as required under the adopted Emergency Conservation Regulation per State Water Resources Control Board (SWRCB).

The City of Cerritos sources of supply are from three City wells and imported water from Central Basin Municipal Water District (CBMWD). The Water Replenishment District of Southern California is responsible for ground water supplies and has informed the City that there will be adequate supplies of groundwater available for years 2017, 2018, and 2019. CBMWD has informed the City that there will be adequate supplies of imported water available for years 2017, 2018, and 2019. The average agency's water use was taken over years 2011-2015. If no request was provided, water supplies were allocated based on historic usage over the past five years. With the average, each agency's percent usage was calculated and applied to the water supplies available. The final allocated water supply that is available for each retail agency includes retail agency requests and stated calculated demands.
