FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Placerville, Calif. — For the month of July, EID customers reduced their water use by 34 percent compared to July 2013.
June was the first month covered under the state’s water-reduction targets. This is the second month in a row EID customers have exceeded state mandated reduction requirements.
EID is required to reduce its water consumption by 28 percent from June 2015 through February 2016, compared to the same months in 2013, under a mandate issued by the State Water Resources Control Board.
“EID’s customers continue to step up in their conservation practices,” said EID General Manager Jim Abercrombie. “We want to thank everybody for their outstanding conservation habits and for continuing to adhere to EID’s watering restrictions.”
District customers remain under a three-days-a-week summer watering schedule that runs through September 30.
Additional information is available on EID’s website at www.eid.org/drought along with ideas for how customers can save water inside and outside of their homes or businesses.
