Water usage reduction urged
Submitted By Michelle Osorio
At the request of Supervisor Dave Cortese, Santa Clara County has been investigating water conservation methods since the Governor declared a drought State of Emergency in California.
ÒWe live in an area that is prone to drought. Yet, our agriculture and lifestyle depend on water,Ó said Cortese. ÒWith that in mind, it is critical that we work together Ð government, businesses, and community members Ð to reduce our water use. By voluntarily reducing our water use by 20 percent, we will preserve enough water to last through this crisis.Ó
At the May 20, 2014 meeting of the Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors, county staff indicated that a 20 percent reduction in water use across the region would help ensure that we have adequate water supply to carry us through the drought.
