The City of San Diego recommended moving from a Level Two Drought Alert to a Level One Drought Watch, which would reduce water restrictions.
The suggestion came Thursday after the San Diego County Water Authority’s (CWA) determination that the region has an adequate water supply for the next three and a half years thanks to conservation efforts and new water supply sources.
San Diego currently has mandatory water use restrictions, but under a drought watch residents would voluntarily conserve water.
The City Council’s Environment Committee may consider the recommendation in the new few weeks.
If approved, the full City Council would consider the recommendation, and the new Level One Drought Watch would go into effect afterwards.
