34% Water Savings in July

Water savings for the FMWD service area were 34% for the month of July 2015
compared to July 2013. The State is using calendar year 2013 as the benchmark for measuring water savings for water agencies throughout California.

“We appreciate customers’ response to requests for conservation and the efforts they have gone to,” said Foothill MWD Board President Richard Atwater. Rains mid-month and cooler temperatures also contributed in assisting water agencies with the savings.

“We ask customers to continue their efforts in saving water. Every drop counts in the fourth year of this historic drought,” said FMWD General Manager Nina Jazmadarian.

California is still in the early months of Governor Edmund G. Brown’s mandated water reductions. Foothill residents therefore must stay vigilant in regards to household water use. Conservation mandates are currently in place until February 28, 2016 as per Brown’s executive order with both Valley Water Company and Rubio Cañon Land & Water Association required to meet a 36% reduction in water use. All agencies in the FMWD service area are requesting customers to limit watering to 2 days a week.

For more details, please contact your water service provider.
