water use. the east bay municipal utilities district has spent many years encouraging water conservation and spent a whole lot of money contracting for additional supplies. we're still on course to have the driest january through june on record in 2022. this is a chart. you're familiar with the drought management program guys in the east bay mud board, but tuesday afternoon to consider drought related measures. needed to maintain adequate supplies. they were in an advantage because they've secured more extra or supplemental water supplies than many other agencies. not only is 2022 looking this way, but the expectation based on what's happening around the state. is that 2023 will also see very limited supplemental supply, even though east bay muds reservoirs are at 71% capacity, they're not expected to fully refill after the spring snowpack melts so the board adopted measures elevating the drought
response to stage two that includes only a 10% mandatory reduction in water use tightening outdoor water use prohibitions. reinstating excessive use penalties and imposing a drought surcharge on all customers to pay for both supplemental water supplies and costs of the drought emergency itself. the surcharge increase is projected to be a maximum of 10 cents per day, or $6 for each two month billing cycle until the end of the drought. outdoor restrictions reduce watering 23 days a week. no runoff allowed no watering between nine and six pm and no street or sidewalk washing summer is the best window to reduce demand. so taking an action now provides the best opportunity to reduce demand during the irrigation season. east bay mud customers, residential business and industrials do not respond meaningfully or the drought worsens than more in the way of
surcharges and penalties could arise. tom baker, ktvu fox two news. alrighty we had a nice day. today. temperatures a little bit cooler, more wind. we're going to see wind again tonight and tomorrow and thursday and friday a little bit the wind conditions right now pretty pretty gusty out of the airport temperatures today suffered accordingly a couple of degrees cooler. temperatures tomorrow will be about the same maybe a little bit cooler than these. so those were the recorded highs from today, but it's breezy makes it tough for the coastal fog to form so we're not really looking at a lot of coastal fog, if any, but as he's lows, kind of keep tracking to the north, which is the very definition of spring. they go to the north of us these lows in the highest jump in and create this pressure, gradient this wind and so this time of year very typical to see wind and we in fact, are seeing it now, and it's even it's still pretty windy for this time of night, right? usually get a diurnal thing where you get you know, the hot valley. cold coast and
that equals out some point in the night winds calm down, but this is a whole different deal. this is more of a driven wind dynamic win, and so we're seeing because sustained winds in fairfield. up to 20. pardon me 20 miles an hour. 26 or 28, mile an hours on the gusts at sfo, so pretty breezy tomorrow will be very similar. like i say, next next 36 48 hours. we're going to see some pretty breezy conditions, not wind advisories. we might see one up high. but more just breezy and gusty at times. cooler tonight because of that. there are the systems kind of a parade of systems like i mentioned the other day. we're getting plenty of surf, and that's because there are still weather systems up there and those weather systems not getting to our latitude. but still active and producing waves and moving to the north of us and all we get is the wind from the pressure gradient. so these are the forecast highs for tomorrow, about the same maybe a little cooler. and in the five day forecast, it is not too bad. i wish we had something to talk about. maybe early next week is the hope we're getting to the
point that heather and julie were rain is sort of a kind of, you know, pipe dream at this point when you get into spring like this, but maybe we can get maybe. all right. thanks so much bill appreciate it. in san francisco, the cost of restoring stern grove after last summer's flooding. has now risen from 4 to $20 million last august, a water main broke, sending 700,000 gallons of water into the park and damaging much of the area of the san francisco board of supervisors approved four million to pay for the cleanup and repairs. well now city staff say that they have uncovered even more damage, increasing the price for repairs to $20 million. there should be something for all musical tastes at the alameda county fair this year, the fair has unveiled the lineup for its concert series, and there are some local legends on tap this year, including oakland native sheila e. and alejo zone function. blue oyster cold play. walker and neon trees are also scheduled to play. the fair is back to its usual summer time schedule. starting june 17th. it was delayed until the
