Residents of jones valley are fighting back against the county board of supervisors today on fines slapped residents for excess water usage. The fine was for a household whose water usage was above 225 gallons a day on average. Just for reference the United States geological survey says that an average individual uses around a 100 gallons a day


Originally the board of supervisors passed this ordinance due to California’s water conservation efforts. However, this has sparked an effort to for this area to separate out of the counties water departments and form their own. This plan is still in its preliminary stages and after meeting with groups to discuss the financial likelihood of the project they can move forward with the plan.
Most of the residents who filed appeals were granted them today due to extreme circumstances such as leaks or other reasons for massive water use.
