Water Use Efficiency (WUE) program: Sallal strives to provide cost-efficient water to its members. Water Conservation, repair of leaks and individual communication with members about suspected leaks or irrigation system problems have been a long-standing practice and continue to be fundamental to conservation objectives. Cost-effective conservation measures that reduce per captia demand and reduce the ratio of the maximum day demand (MDD) to average day demand (ADD) have been implemented.
Water Use Efficiency (WUE) goals:
- Maintain distribution system leakage (DSL) below 7%. The current 3-year rolling average DSL is 10.3%.
- Reduce customer consumption per Equivalent Residential Unit (ERU) by 0.5 gallons per day (GPD) per year over a 20-year period.
- Reduce summer demand relative to the average day demand. This reduction will help to achieve goal 2.
- Continue with water conservation education through brochures, bill inserts and water saving fixtures.
