SCWA Urges Customers to Reduce Water Use by 20 Percent​

Sacramento, CA – The Sacramento region is experiencing its third consecutive dry winter. Although the Sacramento region as a whole is not facing an emergency situation, due to these ongoing dry conditions, the Sacramento County Water Agency is asking its customers to voluntarily reduce water use by 20 percent.
 
“Conserving water is important to assure a continued reliable supply of water to our customers and to everyone in the region. The Sacramento County Water Agency routinely monitors precipitation forecasts and coordinates with other water providers in the region to prepare for dry periods like this. If dry conditions persist into the spring, more stringent conservation measures may become necessary,” says Michael Peterson, Director, Sacramento County Department of Water Resources.
 
Landscape irrigation typically accounts for about 70 percent of total water use. During cooler winter months, landscapes need very little water, making this an easy time of year to conserve water. The winter is also a prime time to inspect, repair and replace indoor plumbing pipes and fixtures.
