Valley Center Water Chief Says Predictions of Drought Restrictions Being Lifted are “Hype”

Thursday morning Valley Center Municipal Water District Gen. Manager Gary Arant issued a statement about the “hype” surrounding current speculations that the state may drop or cut back its drought requirements due to the higher than normal rainfall this year.

Arant’s statement:

“As is typically the case, there is a lot of premature hype and  information about the SWRCB (State Water Resources Control Board) further and relaxing or even dropping the Emergency Drought Regulations which may generate questions from the media or public.
