    WUE Goals:
  • Customer Goal (Demand Side):
    • Our goal through conservation measures is to limit previous 1% growth, over a rolling six year period as a measure of units of water per meter (previously 199 units per meter) to a 0.5% growth in sales to a six year rolling average of 198 units per meter in spite of a 1% growth in the number of meters.
    Describe Progress in Reaching Goals:
  • Customer (Demand Side) Goal Progress:
    • Using inverted block rates, distributing water sprinkler gauges, conservation education through 'Word About Water' pages in Ruralite magazine, and distributing toilet leak detection kits, Parkland Light and Water Co. experience a drop to 160.41 units per year per meter well below our target of 198 units per meter as set in our demand side plan. This figure represents a savings of 214 million gallions for this system below our targeted amount of over the six year period.
  • Additional Information Regarding Supply and Demand Side WUE Efforts
  • Include any other information that describes how you and your customers use water efficiently:
    • The average water loss for 2015 was 6.94%, this reaches our goal to reduce our annual yearly average water loss to less than 10%, and additional goal is to achieve a 3 year average of less than 10%. In 2016 we received leak detection units, hired USA Utility Services to pin-point leaks for in-house repair
