To ensure an adequate supply of water is available for drinking and bathing, you are hereby notified that Stage 2 (Mandatory Water Use Restrictions) of the Drought Contingency Plan is now in effect. Continued record high temperatures and dry conditions in our area have resulted in high water usage during peak hours and is causing stress on the District’s water plant facilities. Continued stress may result in a loss of water pressure, brown water, or a District-wide outage. Jordan Ranch HOA and our neighboring district, Willow Creek Farms Municipal Utility District, have committed to reducing water usage. We are asking residents of Jordan Ranch to do the same. Please see details regarding the Mandatory Water Use Restrictions.
