Stage 3 Water Conservation Plan, City Takes Action

Stage 3 Water Conservation Plan, City Takes Action

Stage 3 water conservation restrictions begin today in West Sacramento to help the City cut water use by 28% as mandated by the State Water Board. “The drought cannot be taken lightly,” said City Manager Martin Tuttle, who issued the Stage 3 declaration. “We encourage businesses and residents to join the City in taking steps to save water, and together, we can reach the 28% goal.”

“Why it’s Dry” signs have been posted in parks and median strips throughout the City

The new restrictions limit watering lawns and ornamental landscaping to one day per week. Street addresses that end in an odd number can water only on Saturdays, and addresses ending in even numbers can only water on Sundays. Food producing gardens and farms are exempt from this rule, but all are encouraged to use water wisely... Read More

West Sacramento Makes Flood Protection a Priority, Even During the Drought

Fifty-two miles of levees surround West Sacramento, protecting residents and businesses from major flood events along the Sacramento River and the Yolo and Sacramento Bypasses.
