Redding Water Customers Exceed State Restrictions

Water customers in the City of Redding have really stepped up to the plate in response to the call for conservation. During the month of May Redding used 251 Million Gallons less than during May of 2013. That represents a 34 percent reduction. Temperatures have been much cooler than they were two years ago, and that helps a lot, so city officials are urging people to remain vigilant in their water conservation efforts as Summer temperatures rise. A guide is being included with utility bills that outlines the state-imposed drought restrictions and provides tips on saving water. Since the first of March, Redding water consumption has dropped by nearly 400 Million gallons from the same period in 2013, a 22 percent reduction. The week of May 17th through the 23rd saw a reduced usage of 86 Million gallons, a 38 percent reduction.
