Conservation Update – We Can Do Better!
The latest water conservation report submitted to the State of California shows Sierra Madre used approximately 6% more water last December as compared to the same month in 2013. Usage spiked to 173.3 acre feet in December 2015.
While it’s true that the El Niño fueled storms moving through California will serve to help the State’s drought problem, its effects are not enough to provide a long-term solution. Conservation measures will continue and residents are asked to remain diligent in their efforts to reduce water waste. Residents are encouraged to take advantage of the wetter season by limiting the irrigation of outside lawns and harvesting rainwater whenever possible.
