NEW: CA Water Check for RV'er's

In line with other water conservation efforts the California State Water Conservation Board has released the following rule concerning RV's entering and leaving the state:

1. Declaration of Inbound Water Supply.

All RV's with onboard fresh water storage must declare the current amount onboard when entering the state. This will be done at the existing Agricultural Inspection Stations. A receipt will be given for the declared amount, spot checks of actual amounts will be made. Those over-declaring water on board will be directed to return to the state from which they entered for sufficient water to make up for any shortage.

2. Declaration of Outbound Water Supply

All RV's leaving the state will be limited to carrying no more fresh water out of the state than declared at entry per item #1 above. Those with excess water onboard will be required to download said excess into the local water system for further use by citizens of the state.
=======================================
The California Republic Department of State reserves the right to deny future entry to those attempting to illegally remove California water from the Golden State.

Bob,

Pretty funny. Perhaps we can all fill up in North Texas and dump in California.

And thanks for pointing out the sub-forum. I didn't know it existed. We need more folks posting on it.

John

Bob,

You had me going until the part about downloading excess water back to municipal water systems. Even I seldom drink the stuff in my freshwater tank. I doubt Californians are that desperate yet. ;-)

Just another way to increase government with no positive outcome.

On the news in California today is a program that converts waste water to drinking water, like on the ISS; its called Toilet to Tap.

Bob's about 150' from the shore of Lake Chelan, a 60 mile long lake in north central WA, very near Canada and full of cold AAA grade Washington water. When I get home in about a month I'll try to bring some water home myself. Unfortunately, my last 10 days will be in NV & AZ so I will probably have to use it before I get home.

Fellow Chelan-er?

Hey Bob,
I'm currently in the process of moving up to Chelan (& ESTATIC to be getting out of CA!!) -- I'll be living in my 25' Bigfoot while building a garage and then small retirement home on 21 acres....
Can't wait to get up to that "cool, clear, waaater...."!!!!
😎

When will you be landing in Chelan and where is your property?
We are currently about 300' from the Lady of the Lake landing


And what are you doing with the 17'er, we are looking for one.

It is fiction, but give it a couple more months and it may happen. Things are getting desperate here.

LOL by a couple of comments it looks like he got a few on it though....

Given the state of the water situation all the way up the coast - even here in traditionally wet BC it would not surprise me if they put something unheard of into place. But how they would go about checking how much water people have in their RV's tanks and knowing there is no way the folks at the agricultural check points are going to have the resources to do it - I burst out laughing at the suggestion & can't see any government actually spending the money due to the small volumes we are talking even trying to do it, no matter how much I hated or liked them.
