Recently, California’s governor declared a drought emergency across most of California. This doesn’t mean that there’s no water in Santa Rosa, however, it does mean that some of your favorite places may look a little different this year and many of our hotels, restaurants, and wineries have modified their service.
Visit Santa Rosa wants to make sure visitors are informed in an effort to minimize water waste, thereby preserving the water supply that serves Santa Rosa and all those who visit our beautiful destination.
Mandatory restrictions and conservation measures are already in place including the following:
• Lodging – Linens will only be changed upon request.
• Restaurants – Water served only upon request.
We also ask all Santa Rosa visitors and residents to conserve water through awareness and simple behavior changes:
• Turn off the tap including when brushing teeth and shaving.
• Reuse your towels.
• Take shorter showers, fewer baths.
• Report leaks to management.
On a final note, some experiences on our lakes and rivers may be different than in the past. We recommend doing some research and checking with tour operators about current water conditions.
For our business, we are working with the City of Santa Rosa to provide you the most up-to-date information. Additional free services include an onsite WaterSmart Indoor and Outdoor Checkup with a customized report for your business that includes current water use findings and recommendations to improve water use efficiency, and rebates to help incentivize project implementation that will not only save water, but also can lower overhead costs and increase property value.
Please contact your Visit Santa Rosa representative and we will connect you with the City of Santa Rosa Drought Program Manager directly or refer to the Drought Information page for more details.
