Stage 4 Water Conservation for Madera Ranchos

Stage 4 Water Conservation Notice Effective August 14th


Due to the unprecedented drought conditions this year and sole reliance on groundwater to meet the

Valley’s water demands, the groundwater table has significantly declined in the vicinity of Madera

Ranchos. The Madera Ranchos Water System currently relies on three wells to meet its water demands.

The declining water table is causing these wells to lose production. The system is unable to maintain

adequate system pressures at current demand levels. It will be necessary to temporarily implement

Stage 4 water shortage contingency measures in Madera Ranchos (MD‐10A) until further notice.

On January 17, 2014, the Governor of California proclaimed a state of emergency due to the current

drought conditions. On January 28, 2014, the Board of Supervisors adopted Resolution No. 2014‐009,
