 A complete list of other restrictions already imposed during the Stage 2 Water Warning is available here

Penalties for water wasting are as follows:

  • First violation: Customer is notified of violation
  • Second violation: Written warning is sent to customer
  • Third violation: $200 fine and customer is scheduled for mandatory water audit
  • Fourth violation: $500 fine and a flow restriction device is installed

The Elk Grove Water District serves most of the customers east of Highway 99 and South of Sheldon Road. Other non-rural parts of Elk Grove have water service from the Sacramento County Water Agency.

The city keeps on approving new homes.

Real smart forward thinking there.

Where is the water going to come from? Sure isn't coming from thin air.

We won't even have enough water to flush our toilets.


Continued drought, one of the worst in over 500 years and they want to allow more new home construction which will lead to even more high density Low Income Housing Projects?
