Fountain Valley failed to meet its water conservation goal for the month of November, realizing a 17 percent savings over the same month in 2013.
This equates to 17.5 percent of the city’s state-mandated 20 percent goal with a total reduction of 435 million gallons. But there’s some good news: We still have the ability to meet the target of a 20 percent water use reduction. How? City officials are asking residents to voluntarily water no more than one day per week.
Post cards were mailed out last week, asking residents and businesses to voluntarily water no more than one day per week between Nov. 1, 2015 and March 12, 2016.
City officials challenge residents to increase their diligence during the winter months and be proactive by committing to the one day per week watering schedule.
