Who is affected?
Everyone, regardless of who they receive their water from, is affected by the recently adopted State law which allows each individual water agency to determine their own conservation goal and how best to meet it.  If you are a Menlo Park Municipal Water District (MPMW) customer, the revised regulations on the City’s webpage apply to you.  If you receive water from a different agency, you will need to contact that agency directly to determine drought regulations that apply to your home/business.
