Stage 3 Drought Emergency in Santa Barbara

On May 5, 2015 the Santa Barbara View editorial reported that the likely hood of Stage 3 Drought Emergency in Santa Barbara was emenient. Here’s an excerpt from that editorial:  “Today at their weekly meeting, the Santa Barbara City Council will likely discuss and adopt stage three water use regulations and development restrictions.

According to the Agenda, for over a year, the City has been taking successive steps in response to what has turned out to be the worst dry period on record in Santa Barbara, with 2015 being the end of the driest four years on record. These steps have been in line with the City’s Water Shortage Contingency Plan and the 2011 Long-Term Water Supply Plan, which are based on the following principles:

• Most of the City’s water supplies depend on rainfall to fill reservoirs;
• Severe drought is an expected part of water supply planning and develops over a number of years, as our primary water supplies diminish;
• A drought might end in a relatively short time, but the lead time needed to ensure an adequate supply of water requires an assumption of continuing drought; and
• Management of customer demand is a critical part of water supply management, including ongoing efficiency improvements during normal times and extraordinary additional cutbacks during extended dry periods.
