Vallecitos customers reduce water use by 31 percent
The Vallecitos Water District congratulates its customers for taking steps to reduce their water usage by 31 percent in June compared to 2013 levels. This equates to a reduction of 555.3 acre-feet of water, which could provide water for more than 1,100 families for one year. Customers also reduced water use 38 percent in May when compared to 2013 levels.
“We would like to thank our customers for making conservation a priority,” said Betty Evans, President of the Vallecitos Water District’s Board of Directors. “Unfortunately the drought is not over. The State’s reservoirs are still very low and the mountain ranges are virtually bare of snow. It’s imperative that our customers continue to conserve as the drought emergency will be in effect through February 2016.”
