Susanville Named Number One in State Water Conservation Report

waterconservationAccording to numbers released Tuesday by the State Water Resources Control Board the City of Susanville has been ranked as the number one water supplier for the state in terms of conservation and per capita water use.

The report compares water use in the city between October 2014 and April 2015 with data from 2013, showing a 56% savings over that period – a far higher percentage than any other of the nearly 400 water districts across the state.

The top ranking water suppliers after our local district are; the City of Riverbank 47%; Bella Vista Water District at 47%; California Water Service Company of Livermore at 45% and the City of Brawley which conserved 43% during the reporting period.

At the other end of the list, the folks who conserved the least across the state, are Casitas Municipal, the City of Burlingame, the City of El Segundo, Quartz Hill Water District and the City of Norwalk.

The City announced Monday that it would begin active enforcement of the State Water Resources Board’s Emergency Water regulations which include a prohibition on using water to wash sidewalks and driveways, allowing water to ‘run-off’ when irrigating, using hoses with no shutoff nozzles to wash cars, using decorative water features that do not recirculate and watering outdoors during and for the 48 hours following measureable precipitation.
