The East Bay Municipal Utility District wants its customers to voluntarily cut down on their water use by 10-percent starting tomorrow.

The district’s board of directors is expected to vote Tuesday on whether to allow district staff to make that conservation request.

District staff want the 10-percent voluntary reduction to “continue until further notice to help keep water in storage during an unprecedented dry year.”

The EBMUD supplies water to a 332-square-mile area in Alameda and Contra Costa counties, extending from Crockett in the north, southward to San Lorenzo, eastward from San Francisco Bay to Walnut Creek, and south through the San Ramon Valley, according to the district.
