Board members on The Nipomo Community Services District (NCSD) have drafted a water shortage response and management plan.
It’s a first time look at a response plan they intend to adopt at their meeting on Wednesday. The process will about three months. The goal of the district is to adopt rates that will be implemented and used during advanced drought.
NCSD general manager, Michael LeBrun, said the community is currently in a stage two drought and residents are asked to conserve 20 percent of their water use.
"Should we get into advanced stages of drought this summer the board can then act," LeBrun said.
As part of its drafted plan, if the community gets into a stage three, four, or five drought NCSD customers could be asked to conserve up to 60 percent of their water use.
