The City of Thousand Oaks asks you to conserve water usage inside and outside your home.
Southern Californians need to recognize that they live in an arid region and that growing demands for water require all water users to efficiently use this resource. Record dry weather can dramatically decrease runoff from the Sierra Nevada snowpack which is where our water originates. As well, environmental concerns in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta restrict the ability to transport water.
