Granite Bay, Calif. – Customers in San Juan Water District’s retail service area reduced their November water use by 39.5 percent. This brings our cumulative reduction since the governor enacted mandatory restrictions to 36.6 percent.
“This is a great number and our customers have worked hard to achieve this level of savings,” said Shauna Lorance, general manager. “We know it is much more difficult for customers to meet our mandated 36 percent cutback during the winter months.”
The district continues to work with customers to support conservation efforts. We have several programs and services available to help customers reduce their water use. These include water audits (indoor/outdoor), rebates, landscape irrigation reviews and leak detection.
“Now that we are experiencing cooler temperatures and measurable rainfall, we are asking customers to turn off their irrigation systems and let Mother Nature take over,” said Lisa Brown, customer service manager. “Even though we exceeded our target in November, we need customers to continue conserving this winter in order to meet our mandate.”
Customers are encouraged to visit SJWD.org for more winter conservation tips and information on customer rebates and other programs.
