California Water Service Publishes Annual Local Water Conservation Reports

SAN JOSE, Calif., March 26, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Although California is no longer in a drought, customers of California Water Service (Cal Water)—the largest subsidiary of California Water Service Group (CWT)—have continued using water efficiently across the state, as shown in the utility’s 2018 conservation reports for each of its service areas.            

Each local “Making a Splash in Conservation” report highlights annual and lifetime savings that conservation programs utilized by Cal Water customers achieved. Additionally, company-wide, nearly all Cal Water districts are below the per-capita urban water demand targets set by the state for 2020. Copies of each local report are available online at www.calwater.com/wcr.

Cal Water offers multiple water-use efficiency programs to its residential, commercial, and industrial customers to help them reduce water use. Program details are available at www.calwater.com/conservation.

“We have enjoyed a record winter, but our customers’ water-use efficiency demonstrates a recognition that water is a precious, finite resource, whether we are experiencing drought conditions or not,” said Martin A. Kropelnicki, Cal Water President & Chief Executive Officer. “Efficient water use will help us meet the state’s impending, long-term water efficiency standards.”

California Water Service serves about 2 million people through 484,900 service connections in California. The utility has provided water service in the state since 1926. Additional information may be obtained online at www.calwater.com
