Emergency Drought Response:  Since California received some of the rain expected in 2015, Governor Brown has altered the Executive Order and reduced the conservation regulations previously established. The new regulations allowed agencies to provide information on water needs to the State Water Resources Control Board and establish a percentage reduction according to those figures. Based on the new regulations, The City of Glendora is required to reduce water consumption by 20%. The City of Glendora must comply with the regulations and State Law or will be subject to fines of up to $10,000 per day.
