Voluntary Mandatory Water Conservation in Effect (2/9/2015)

NGWCo_Voluntary Conservation

The North Fork of the Gualala River has swelled over the last couple of days due to the recent rain storms. River flows are now above the bypass requirement of 41 cubic feet per second (see here), which means that the district is back under Voluntary Water Conservation measures.

Customers are being notified of the change by automated phone call on Monday, February 9, 2015.

River opening to ocean

The Gualala River estuary opened to the Pacific Ocean on Friday afternoon around 4:15 pm. Before it opened the estuary looked like a lake and all the way upstream the river beaches were under water–it was quite a sight.

Thanks for your conservation efforts, everyone!
