Fortunately, winter storms have provided some welcome relief. Based on water levels in the reservoir. Southern California Edison.(SCE) received authorization from the California Public Utilities Commission to deactivate Stage 3 Mandatory Water Conservation and Rationing, which is triggered when the reservoir falls below 200 acre feet, and return to Stage 1 Mandatory Conservation. Stage 1 was activated on March 7, 2017. Customers are no longer subject to daily allotments, but Stage 1 does have restrictions on the use of water fit for drinking. Island residents, who already had some of the best water use practices in the state, have been effective in reducing our water use. Please continue to use water wisely during Stage I Mandatory Conservation. with Visitor counts 105,000 ...................................... 40.00 95,000 .................................... 35.00 85,~0 30.00 25.00 ˝rsL~-r Counts[] Ware[ U~Je (Acre Fee~) Water Supply Status and Stage 1 Results " • As of June 15 2017 the Middle Ranch Reservoirwater level was 716 acre feet. • In May, 2017, water use declined 37 percent even with a 23 percent increase in visitors to the island; 22 acre feet Of water was used compared to 35 acre feet in May, 2013. • In May, 2017 water use increased 19 percent with e 6 percent increase in visitors to the is- land; 22 acre feet of water was used compared to 18 acre feet in May, 2016.
