During the first month of the state's drought reporting period,
Camrosa customers reduced their water use by 23 percent of the 32 percent
that's required by the State Water Board.
We're off to a good start, but we have a
ways—and eight months—left to go.
We'll be holding another public outreach meeting in mid-August to update you on
Camrosa's progress towards our mandated reduction goal,
to talk about what we're doing to help our customers get there, and to answer your
questions on what more you can do to contribute.
Until then, check out our conservation page
for tips and resources to continue conserving: everyone has to do their part if we're going
to get down to a 32-percent reduction.
