New Water Treatment Plant News:

Fellow Property Owners,

I have some Bad News: The old water treatment plant that served us faithfully for 20 years is no longer functioning.  The last day the plant operated was Tuesday, April 14, 2015.

Now the Good News: Thursday morning, April 16, 2015, the new water treatment plant came on line and is making clean water!  It has been a long and arduous road, but we have the new water plant the State has been trying to get us for over ten years.  There is still a lot of construction work to go, but the end is in sight.  Okay, that is really good news....

Water Conservation

As most of you probably know, we are in one of the worst droughts ever in Northern California and there appears to be not much relief in sight. The Harbor View Mutual Water Company has issued a Water Conservation Notice, please see below. Please click HERE for a PDF copy of the State Water Board's 2015 Regulations.

You might also want to visit the Save the Water Website for more information on the drought and what you can do to help conserve this precious resource.

Water Conservation Notice

To All Riviera West Property Owners:

We strongly urge all customers to conserve water until further notice.

Critically low water table levels and low lake levels are threatening the water systems statewide. For the second year in a row, the State has implemented emergency drought regulations requiring public water supplies implement water conservation regulations.

Harbor View MWC implemented the following requirements in September 2014. These requirements meet the State requirements and are still applicable.

  1. Outdoor irrigation be reduced to no more than twice a week
  2. The application of potable water to any driveway or sidewalk is prohibited.
  3. Using potable water to water outdoor landscapes in a manner that causes runoff to adjacent property, non-irrigated areas, private and public walkways, roadways, parking lots or structures is prohibited.
  4. Using a hose that dispenses potable water to wash a motor vehicle, unless the hose is fitted with a shut-off nozzle is prohibited.

Using water wisely helps protect your water system, especially during these periods of short supply. When you use water outdoors, use a spray nozzle which regulates flow and shuts off when not needed.

It is always important to conserve water and care should be taken to prevent any unnecessary use. Please consider installing Low-Flow devices on all of your in-home faucets and showers, and installing Low Flow/Flush toilets. Installing drought resistant landscaping and drip irrigations systems also save water. Water conservation is important and saves you money.

Should you have any questions about water conservation or low flow devices, please contact our administrative office at 707-279-8544.

Thank You,

Tom Smythe
