Conservation Conversations: Tapping Data to Meet Water Use Objectives

Governor Gavin Newsom declared a statewide drought emergency this fall, calling on Californians to voluntarily reduce water use by 15 percent. Concurrently, the State Water Resources Control Board (SWRCB) introduced new urban water use objectives slated for adoption in July 2022.

Our water resources experts hosted this engaging webinar to help California water agencies better understand exactly what is needed to meet the state’s timeline for implementation, how to leverage advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) data, and get a handle on compliance. During the presentation, they addressed the following common questions:

  • Am I collecting the right data to accurately calculate my target?
  • How does my current water use compare to my target?
  • How can I prepare if I am worried about meeting my target?
  • What opportunities do I have to increase my target?
  • Will changing demand patterns impact my ability to comply?

Along the way, they shared optimal tools for calculating water use targets, forecasting demand, and ways to improve data collection and management.
