SACRAMENTO – Californians reduced water use by more than 26 percent during September, exceeding Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr.’s 25 percent conservation mandate for a fourth straight month.
In Rialto, our target conservation number is 28% – in September, we fell short of that goal, reaching 22.4% conservation over our September 2013 consumption. Thank you for your efforts to conserve water – please review our conservation tips so we continue to work toward meeting our goal.
“Millions of Californians have saved water during the summer months, which are the four most critical months to save water,” said Felicia Marcus, chair of the State Water Resources Control Board. “This is important and wonderful, and we are thankful for all of the effort by individuals and agencies. Now, we need to keep it up as best we can, even as we hope for as much rain and snow as we can safely handle. We’re in the position of having to prepare for drought and flooding at the same time, but that’s what we’re faced with.”
