At their meeting Thursday, Cambria’s services district directors are scheduled to discuss whether to modify the ban on using drinkable water to irrigate outdoor landscaping.
A staff report for the meeting recommends keeping the ban in place and revisiting the issue when the board meets again Nov. 21.
The Cambria Community Services District’s water supply was nearing a crisis point in mid-September, with San Simeon Creek supplies in district wells the lowest they’ve been since the 1988-1989 drought. A Santa Rosa Creek monitoring well was at such a low level that the district couldn’t pump from its more robust supply near Leffingwell High School.
Other agenda items include approving the latest contract for General Manager Jerry Gruber and reviewing the 2012-2013 end-of-year budget.
