SAN JOSE, Calif., March 26, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Although California is no longer in a drought, customers of California Water Service (Cal Water)—the largest subsidiary of California Water Service Group (NYSE: CWT)—have continued using water efficiently across the state, as shown in the utility’s 2018 conservation reports for each of its service areas.
Each local “Making a Splash in Conservation” report highlights annual and lifetime savings that conservation programs utilized by Cal Water customers achieved. Additionally, company-wide, nearly all Cal Water districts are below the per-capita urban water demand targets set by the state for 2020. Copies of each local report are available online at www.calwater.com/wcr.
Cal Water offers multiple water-use efficiency programs to its residential, commercial, and industrial customers to help them reduce water use. Program details are available at www.calwater.com/conservation.
“We have enjoyed a record winter, but our customers’ water-use efficiency demonstrates a recognition that water is a precious, finite resource, whether we are experiencing drought conditions or not,” said Martin A. Kropelnicki, Cal Water President & Chief Executive Officer. “Efficient water use will help us meet the state’s impending, long-term water efficiency standards.”
California Water Service serves about 2 million people through 484,900 service connections in California. The utility has provided water service in the state since 1926. Additional information may be obtained online at www.calwater.com.
