SAN JOSE, Calif., Dec. 22, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Although the weather has started to cool, California Water Service (Cal Water) customers continued to reduce their water use for the seventh month in a row in November. More than half of Cal Water’s districts surpassed 15% in reductions; company-wide, Cal Water reduced water use by 13.6% compared to November 2020.
“I would like to thank our customers for all of their hard work stepping up conservation efforts this year,” said Martin A. Kropelnicki, President and CEO. “While we are hoping for a wet winter, we urge our customers to stay mindful of their water use and continue to save water every day.”
During these wetter months, as more water is used inside homes and businesses, Cal Water encourages customers to remember simple indoor water-saving tips, such as turning off the tap when brushing teeth or shaving, running full loads of laundry and dishes, and checking toilets for leaks.
