Cape George Colony Club

Water Use Efficiency and Conservation Program

On Tuesday, July 10, 2012, 2:30 pm, at the Clubhouse, a public forum for the purpose of setting a goal on water conservation will be held. The setting of the goal is to comply with the Washington StateDepartment of Health water use efficiency program. A link to the Cape George Colony Club Water Use Efficiency and Conservation program has been posted on the Cape George website for your review.

 

The Water Committee has set goals internally on how the system is operated. One goal is to maintain a filter backwash water usage at 5% of total gallons pumped. The second goal is to maintain water leakage in the water system at under 10% of total gallons pumped.

The goal of the meeting on the 10th of July will be a consumer based goal. The proposed goal is to reduce water usage by 2% in the peak water usage period of the beginning June to the end of September. Based on 2011 water usage that would be a savings of 210,058 gallons per year. Over a six year span of the goals existence there would be a total savings of 1,260,348 gallons. This goal would need no additional funding to enact and could actually save the members financially on their water payments and water system operating expense. Water conservation reminders in the newsletter during the peak usage period will be submitted to attempt to meet this goal. If you are interested in providing comment on conservation measures, please plan on attending.
