News Release: State Streamlines Domestic Water Tank Storage Process In Response to Drought
From the California Department of Fish and Wildlife:
“As the unprecedented drought continues in California, a number of the state’s coastal rivers and streams are in danger of reaching critically low stages later this summer, threatening rural drinking water supplies. But plans are now in place to assist landowners that store water for use later in the season through a state program.
“The California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) and the State Water Resources Control Board (State Water Board) announced today [March 13] that they will expedite approval for the installation of storage tanks by landowners who currently divert water from these important rivers and streams. The action comes under the State Water Board’s Small Domestic Use (SDU) registration program.”
