Claremont City Hall - The lawn is gone.
Inland Empire’s TOP 4 Water Saver Cities
1. Inland Empire edition of Golden Bucket Award Winner. Golden State Water/Claremont, CA. Claremont not only comes in first in the Inland Empire, They’re first in Southern California and sixth statewide in results according to a recent SWRCB report. Claremont surpassed their mandated water usage reduction of 32% by 13.3 for a 45.3% total reduction in water usage. This places them 6th in the state in total reduction and a Top Ten place in our statewide TOP TEN WATER SAVERS. And they’re still tearing out lawns. Congrats Claremont! Can I water my lawn now?
2. East Valley Water District - Highland, CA. Highland surpassed their 28% reduction mandate by 8.2% for a total reduction of 36%. You wouldn’t think there’d be any water left out there to save after Nestle/Arrowhead bottled their daily 68,000 gallons of water. I’ll bet the water bill for the Highland residents is a lot more than the 600$ a year Nestle pays for all that water.
3. Pomona, CA – Pomona only needed to hit 20% but they kept going and hit at total water use reduction of 27%. Good work Pomona!
4. San Dimas, CA – Needed 28% but stretched it to a 35% total reduction.
The rest of the Inland Cities hit their marks give or take 1% and here they are:
Fontana 29% reduction – mandate 28%
San Bernardino 29%... ...................READ FULL ARTICLE
