Tucson, September 30, 2016.
Members of the Water Conservation Alliance of Southern Arizona (Water CASA) are pleased to announce the latest analysis of their water use trends. Water CASA has been tracking the water usage by their customers since 2000 and recently completed the update through 2015.
On a percentage basis, water use for customers in 2011 was 85% of what it was per customer in 2000. By 2013 that percentage had declined to 82% of 2000 usage. The latest analysis shows even further reduction in gallons per capita per day (GPCD) to be 72% of what it was in 2000.
Water CASA members are pleased with this continued increase in water use efficiency and note that it is a trend being seen regionally and, to a lesser degree, nationally.
There is always more that can be done to save water and, entering its 20th year, Water CASA continues its work to enhance the public’s awareness and understanding of conservation issues, methods, and best practices.
