Water Shortage Emergency Declared
On December 9, ACWD declared a water shortage emergency in Fremont, Newark and Union City and adopted an ordinance with mandatory water use restrictions aimed at reducing water use by 15% across the Tri-City area. Individual customer accounts will not be subject to specific reduction levels.
Customers are asked to eliminate water waste, limit outdoor irrigation while maintaining landscape viability, and minimize other non-essential water use.
