Despite San Diego County Water Authority (SDCWA) Declaring Drought Over Water Usage Restriction Still in Place in for Imperial Beach & Coronado Customers of California American Water.

On Thursday. The San Diego County Water Authority (SDCWA) declared that the drought is over. In there statement they said, "This follows recent heavy rainfall and powerful storms which left much of the county soggy. This winter has improved drought conditions according the Authority, and means San Diego County has enough water supply to last at least three years, however residents are reminded that we should never waste any natural resource."

However, for customers of California American Water (CAW) in San Diego water usage restrictions are still in place. California American Water told me that "California American Water encourages its customers to continue to be mindful of their water use, even with the large amount of rain and numerous winter storms that southern California has experienced recently.  The State Water Resource Control Board is monitoring the drought daily and will discuss the current water restrictions at their upcoming February meeting.  California American Water will update customers in its San Diego County District and throughout the state should the State Water Resource Control Board update the current water use restrictions."

In speaking with California American Water I was also told that just as soon as there is any change in there usage restrictions of water that they will let me and more importantly, their customers know ASAP.
