Learn about Cambria's water conservation plan at special meeting

ktanner@thetribunenews.comFebruary 5, 2013 

The public has a chance to learn more about and comment on a draft water conservation plan Feb. 12 at a special meeting set by the Cambria Community Services District.

The plan, crafted by Bill Maddaus, a consultant hired by the district, includes data on the district’s historical and projected water use, 20 options for long-term water-conservation measures and three potential programs combining some of those options.

How different categories of water users divvy up the supply and for what also is included, as are recommendations on the most economical ways to save water.

The steps are designed to show the district can meet and exceed state mandates for water conservation. That also might allow the board to approve adding a few new residential water connections each year, boosting the local and district economies while gradually providing coveted intent-to-serve letters to people on the water wait list, many of whom have been waiting more than a decade to build.

The special meeting starts at 6 p.m. at the Veterans Memorial Building, 1000 Main St., Cambria.

The plan was presented in preliminary form at the district Board of Directors meeting on Jan. 17; the board could adopt the finalized plan during its regular monthly meeting on Feb. 28.
