March 2016 Conservation Progress Update

The State Water Resources Control Board has extended water use reduction requirements through October 2016; however, the reduction target has been lowered in some communities as noted below. Below are reductions achieved in each Cal Water system in March. As water use tends to increase as spring returns, please remember that Cal Water offers a number of conservation programs to help our customers save more water. We thank our customers who have been diligent in reducing their use and encourage everyone to keep up your conservation efforts.
