§ 991. Conservation and Use Reporting by Urban Water Suppliers.
(a) Each urban water supplier shall prepare and submit to the Board by the 28th of each month a monitoring report on forms provided by the Board. The monitoring report shall include the following information:
(1) The urban water supplier's public water system identification number(s).
(2) The urban water supplier's volume of total potable water production, including water provided by a wholesaler, in the preceding calendar month;
(3) The population served by the urban water supplier during the reporting period;
(4) The percent residential use that occurred during the reporting period;
(5) The water shortage response action level.
(b) When the governor declares a drought emergency, or when an urban water supplier invokes a water shortage level to respond to a shortage of greater than ten percent, consistent with Water Code section 10632; each urban water supplier shall prepare and submit to the Board by the 28th of each month an expanded monitoring report, on forms provided by the Board. The requirement to prepare and submit an expanded monitoring report shall remain in effect for the duration of the drought emergency or water shortage level, as applicable. The expanded monitoring report shall include the following information:
(1) Descriptive statistics on the urban water supplier's achievement of its water contingency plan response actions, including supply augmentation, if any, and progress toward achieving a reduction in water consumption associated with the urban water supplier's existing water shortage response action level;
(2) Communication actions;
(3) Compliance and enforcement actions.
(c) Each urban water supplier that provides potable water for commercial agricultural use may subtract the amount of water provided for commercial agricultural use from its potable water production total, provided that any urban water supplier that subtracts any water provided for commercial agricultural use from its total potable water production shall clearly identify what water use qualifies as commercial agricultural use.
(d) The Executive Director, or the Executive Director's designee, may issue an order to any urban water supplier that fails to submit the information required by this section, requiring the urban water supplier to provide the information by a specified date. Failure to provide the required information as identified in an order issued pursuant to this subdivision, or the submission of any information pursuant to an order issued pursuant to this subdivision that is found to be materially false by the Board, is a violation, punishable by civil liability of up to one thousand dollars ($1,000) for each day in which the violation occurs. Every day that the failure or error goes uncorrected constitutes a separate violation. Civil liability for the violation is in addition to, and does not supersede or limit, any other remedies, civil or criminal.
(e) A decision or order issued under this section by the Board or an officer or employee of the Board is subject to reconsideration under article 2 (commencing with section 1122) of chapter 4 of part 1 of division 2 of the Water Code.
