We are one month into 2016 and San Diego has some interesting water news! Hopefully conserving water is one of your new year’s resolutions and is one you’re sticking with! Below are a few stories that make up the San Diego best water roundup for January 2016.
Money for Improvements
With San Diego’s seemingly never ending drought, the state is on the hunt for more ways to meet the city’s water needs. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has announced $182 million in federal funding will be funneled into improving California’s water infrastructure in both the areas of wastewater and drinking water. As weather conditions stay dry and the drought continues, California has recognized it needs to act and move toward sustainable and environmentally friendly solutions to its water problems.
Sustainability is key to ensuring population growth and a healthy community for years to come.
Legal Battles Continue
Water policies have been undergoing scrutiny and have been a hot topic in court this year and some of those battles continue. The City of San Diego and Metropolitan Water District of Southern California have undergone legal battles regarding how much money is charged to deliver water, rebate programs, and other critical water issues.
Between the two entities, more than 30 million dollars has been spent in legal fees on just one dispute alone, begging the question- who is really benefiting from all this fighting?
Water Savings Are On the Rise
The results are in and the residents of San Diego can be proud! An 18 percent water savings in December keeps San Diego on track to meet its water saving goals.It is hard to make any headway in water savings in the winter since less outdoor water is used in landscaping efforts so to see 18 percent is a great stride for the city’s residents.
