[ARCHIVED] Poway Beats State Water Use Target

You did it, Poway! Because of your conservation efforts, we have beaten the state’s mandatory water conservation target. In May, residents conserved an unprecedented 42 percent compared to May 2013 (the base year used by the state to measure compliance). Collectively, residents and businesses have saved 29.3 percent since June 2015, beating Poway’s state mandated target of 24 percent.

As we enter a fifth straight year of drought conditions, it is clear that we must make water conservation a permanent way of life. We need to continue focusing efforts on limiting how much water we use outdoors by embracing drought tolerant plants and high-efficiency irrigation.

“It’s no surprise that residents and businesses in Poway rose to the occasion,” said Dan Singer, Poway’s city manager. “Whatever the emergency is, whether it’s wildfires, El Nino flooding or this drought – Poway residents band together and meet the challenge head on.”
