Santa Clara County Supervisors approve reduction of government water use

Submitted By Janice Rombeck

In response to the stateÕs emergency drought conditions, the Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors voted 5-0 on August 26, to set a County Government goal of cutting water use by 25 percent. The Supervisors approved a proposal by Supervisor Dave Cortese that calls for immediate reduction by each County Department with a minimum target of 25 percent.

ÒThe stateÕs restrictions on water use have mostly targeted homes and businesses,Ó Cortese said. ÒCounty government employees should lead by example and explore strategies to use less water at work.Ó

For more information, call the Office of Supervisor Cortese at (408) 299-5030.
