Water Use Goes Down in September
Despite going up a little in August, we are still at an impressive 33.5 percent reduction over two years, exceeding the Governor’s call for extreme water use reduction. Homeowners have figured out the secret, and it shows up in yellow lawns and water-wise landscapes all over town, just like in many neighbor-ing communities throughout the area.
In September we used 22,794,552 gallons (30,474 units), down from 41,068,940 gallons (54,905 units) in September 2014. So far this year, we’ve used 264,257,872 gallons, down from 353,231,000 gallons during the same period in 2014. Your water bill is in units, with each unit being one hundred cubic feet, or 748 gallons.
