Rio Linda Water declares Stage 1 Conservation Contingency Plan

The Messenger got a notification from the Rio Linda Elverta Community Water District (RLECWD) yesterday regarding what’s certainly been obvious; We are in a historically severe drought, and the time has come for us to all begin working our water conservation plans in earnest.

“Pursuant to the mandates included in Governor Newsom’s Executive Order N-7-22 the Board of Directors of the Rio Linda Elverta Community Water District (RLECWD) has declared stage 1 of the adopted Water Shortfall Contingency Plan, Ordinance 2015-01, which can be reviewed via the following link:


In addition to all of the water waste restrictions which are applicable to “Normal Water Supply” detailed in Section 5 of Ordinance 2015-1, the above described Board declaration implements Section 6, Water Conservation Stage 1.”

The objective of Water Conservation Stage 1 is a 20% reduction in water consumption.

One of the water use restrictions in Stage 1 is prescribed watering days beginning on June 6, 2022.

  • Properties with odd-numbered addresses may water only on Saturdays, Mondays and Wednesdays.
  • Properties with even-numbered addresses may water only on Sundays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays.

Failure to comply with the restrictions detailed in Ordinance 2015-01 may result in fines and/or termination of water service.

Questions or concerns may be directed to RLECWD via phone at (916) 991-8891 or email Questions@RLECWD.com.

  • Contacted the RLECWD today for the first time for a repair question. Voicemail. Immediately got a return call from an upset angry woman issuing threats about what will happen if my licensed repairman attempts to turn off the water at the meter. Absolutely rude and uncalled for. Yikes!
