The San Diego Housing Commission (SDHC) is joining the City of San Diego's “San Diegans Waste No Water” campaign to reduce water use in the City of San Diego because of the severity of our statewide drought conditions.
SDHC is required to reduce water usage by 16 percent. This takes effect June 1, 2015, to comply with limits the State Water Resources Control Board has set for the City of San Diego, as a result of Governor Jerry Brown’s water conservation order on April 1, 2015.
This is California state law.
SDHC is looking at everything we can do to comply with the law.
As a major step, SDHC is “Going Gold” by eliminating irrigation of lawns at all of our properties, beginning immediately.
This goes above and beyond current restrictions which limit watering to two times a week, and is one of the single most effective measures to save water. It follows the City of San Diego’s decision to eliminate irrigation of city medians and to reduce watering at small parks and municipal golf courses.
As a private landlord who rents to tenants with federal Section 8 Housing Choice Vouchers from SDHC, we urge you to comply with this new state law by reducing water use in the City of San Diego.
