Water Efficiency

Supply Updates

On April 29, the San Juan Water District Board of Directors voted to adopt a modified stage 4 water crisis to meet the state’s mandatory 36 percent water cutbacks. The 36 percent reduction applies to the district as a whole, not individual customers. Through regular meter read comparisons of 2015 use to 2013 use and water waste tips from residents, high water users will be issued notices of non-compliance, which may eventually lead to disconnection of service with progressively higher reconnect charges for recurring violations.

The board also approved implementing modified drought rates, which is a 10 percent increase from $0.80 to $0.88 per unit (ccf or 748 gallons) on the volumetric use part of the bill. Under this rate scenario, customers that do not comply with water reductions will see an increase on their water bill.

Get Involved

We’re spreading the word about water efficiency. You can join these efforts, too! Water is one of our most valuable resources. While it may seem abundant, it’s not. All the water we have today is all the water we’ll ever have. With a growing population and changing climate patterns, it’s important for everyone to use our supplies wisely. Doing so will help ensure water is available during drought years and for generations to come. Together, we can make a difference.
