The Chico Cal Water office was flooded with phone calls today from people asking questions about the new restrictions. In Chico you can only water three days a week and never between 8 AM and 8 PM. Water wasters can be fined or even have their water shut off. Everyone is supposed to cut back 32% of their 2013 usage. That number can be found on your June bill.
"When they receive their June bill sometime during the course of the month, whenever the usual billing cycle is they will have their water budget on the bill as well. They will be able to look at what they used in 2013 and their target is going to be for 2015." says Cal Water District Manager Pete Bonacich.
If customers go over their budgeted amount of water they can be charged. If customers feel they need more water than they in 2013, they can file an appeal on the Cal Water's web site for a larger water budget.
