The Sierra Madre City Council has scheduled a Special Council meeting to discuss the implementation of Mandatory Water Conservation Measures. The meeting will be held on Tuesday, June 18th at 6:00 pm in the City Hall Council Chambers at 232 W. Sierra Madre Boulevard. The meeting is open to the public and the Council encourages interested individuals to attend the meeting.
On May 28th, mandatory water conservation measures were implemented due to the declining supply of water in the underground aquifer that supplies 90 to 95% of Sierra Madre’s water. There are a number of reasons for the decline in the aquifer, including lower than normal rainfall, restrictions to the City’s adjudicated right to pump water, lower than normal spreading of water at the City’s spreading basins, and increased consumption by the City’s water customers.
