Mandatory Water Restriction in Effect
August 19, 2014
Since November 2013, the City of West Sacramento has requested that all water customers voluntarily comply with a 20 percent reduction in water use and with water conservation measures outlined in the City's Urban Water Management Plan, Stage 2 Water Shortage Contingency. Residents responded with merit by effectively reducing water use by 19.4 percent. However, the State continues to experience an extreme drought emergency. Therefore, further action is required on the part of all Californians.

As a result, the State Water Resources Control Board adopted emergency drought regulations which became effective July 28, 2014. These regulations prohibit certain water uses and direct the cities, including the City of West Sacramento, to implement a water shortage contingency plan that imposes mandatory restrictions on outdoor watering.

The State Water Resources Control Board adopted emergency regulations on Tuesday, July 15th that would make certain types of water waste a criminal infraction, punishable by fines of up to $500. The temporary emergency rules require all municipal water agencies, such as the City of West Sacramento, to ban certain uses of drinking water and to impose the Stage 2 mandatory outdoor water restrictions outlined in the City's Urban Water Management Plan Water Shortage Contingency (available at the link below). Details about when and how the regulations will be implemented are still being worked out at the State level. More information will be provided as it comes available.

Mike McGowan Bridge Under Construction--New Bridge will Improve Traffic Flow on Jefferson Blvd.
July 15, 2014
Construction of the Mike McGowan Bridge in West Sacramento is underway. The new bridge will link South River Road across the Barge Canal, adding a third connection between the north and south portions of the city.

The Mike McGowan Bridge will improve traffic circulation on the eastern side of the city. The bridge provides an alternate vehicular route from Highway 50 to Southport, thereby reducing traffic delays on Jefferson Boulevard and Highway 50/Business 80 associated with goods movement at the Port of West Sacramento and other rail users in the West Sacramento industrial area.

Project completion is expected by November 2014.
