Water Conservation
With all the rain we have received this winter, there has been a lot of talk about the end of the drought in California. But the end of the drought does not necessarily mean the need to conserve goes away. Alamo Creek, along with several other nearby communities will be on water rationing once the community has been fully built out. Each lot within Alamo Creek as well as the common areas has a set water budget, given to each lot owner when they purchased their home. Below is a chart showing the allocation for each lot based on lot size. Please note that this includes both indoor and outdoor watering.
 
LOT SIZE (SQ FT)     GALLONS PER DAY
Less than 5,000          248
 5,000 – 5,999            264
 6,000 – 6,999            293
 7,000 – 7,999            328
 8,000 – 8,999            348
 9,000 – 9,999            363
10,000 – 10,999         424
11,000 – 11, 999        478
12,000 – 12,999         506
13,000 – 13,999         532
14,000 – 14,999         558
Greater than 15,000     609
 
Creation of Water Conservation Committee
While the full build out of Alamo Creek is still a couple years away, the Board would like to formally appoint a group of volunteer homeowners to the Water Conservation Committee to begin educating homeowners about water conservation, meeting with EBMUD to review historical water use at Alamo Creek and recommending actions for the Board to take regarding common area irrigation. A Committee Charter for the Water Conservation Committee is included on the next page of this newsletter. If you are interested in serving on the Committee, please speak with our community manager, Ryan Bantz.
