Roseville Hits 18.2 Percent Water Use Reduction



CityRosevilleChart.gif

Roseville, CA -- The City of Roseville points to continued progress toward reducing water use; encourages water customers to look for irrigation leaks and inefficiencies

Roseville continues to make progress toward meeting its community water use reduction goal of 20 percent, reducing water use in the month of July by 17.4 percent as compared to 2013. This brings the cumulative water use reduction achieved by Roseville since January 2014 to 18.2 percent.

During this time of year, 50 percent of a typical home's water use is for outdoor irrigation.

You can reduce your outdoor water use significantly by simply taking 15 short minutes to step outside and do these three things:

  1. Turn it on! Turn on your irrigation system, valve by valve, and look for broken or leaking sprinklers, leaky valves, or misdirected spray. Fix all problems immediately.
  2. Turn it down! Eliminating one irrigation cycle or reducing each irrigation cycle by two minutes could save more than 2,200 gallons of water per month, which is more than 10 percent of a typical home's monthly use. You're already half way to your 20 percent reduction goal.
  3. Know your usage! You may be surprised.The best way to determine how you can save water is to know how much water you are using.
