Letter by LCV to Cities Regarding Water Conservation

To: City Manager (Santa Rosa, Petaluma, Sonoma, Coati, Rohnert Park, Windsor, Healdsburg, Sebastopol), or,
To: District Manager (Valley of the Moon, North Marin Water District, Marin Municipal Water District)

The League of Women Voters would like to be provided with the following information about water consumption in your city or district this year, compared to the usage in 2004. These information, important to our members, is critical to understanding how our county’s water users and suppliers are responding to the State Water Resources Control Board mandated 15% reduction in diversions from the Russian River from July 1 to October 28, 2007. This will help us in formulating future water policy recommendations regarding the effectiveness of conservation efforts.

Please supply us with the following information for your city or district, preferably measured in acre feet.

1. What were your 2004 metered water deliveries from SCWA and also from local well production or other local sources (please specify if not from wells), on a monthly basis from January to November 2004 (the base year for comparison).

2. What were your total potable water deliveries to your customers in each month of 2007, January through July.

3. Please break down your monthly water deliveries in 2007 as follows:

a. What were your 2007 metered water deliveries from SCWA during each month of 2007, January through July.

b. During each month of 2007, please specify how much of your potable water demand was supplied from local production (wells)

c. During each month of 2007, please specify how much of your potable water demand was offset by or replaced with recycled water

d. Please note if there were any significant losses in your delivery systems due to pipeline breaks, leaks or other causes.

Thank you very much for your timely assistance with this important information.
