CA releases new water production, consumption reporting requirement

Sponsored by

ARCADIA, CA, August 15, 2014 -- In an effort to address reduced water supplies made worse by continuing drought conditions, the state of California has announced a new reporting requirement for water production and water consumption.

According to the State Water Resources Control Board, the emergency regulatory action is meant to "ensure that urban water suppliers implement drought response plans to limit outdoor irrigation and other wasteful water practices."

In addition to having to impose mandatory restrictions on the use of potable water for certain outdoor uses, suppliers must also provide a monitoring report by the 15th of every month, beginning in August 2014. The report must detail the amount of potable water produced or purchased and the number of customers served.

Additional residential per capita consumption reports will be required starting on October 15th, 2014.

Water utilities and suppliers can address this emergency reporting requirement through automated production reports available through Sedaru, a software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution provided by IDModeling, Inc., a global provider of smart water network software and services.

In support of the Emergency Regulations for Water Conservation, Sedaru delivers automated water production and consumption reports. This automation can source data directly from existing SCADA, AMI/AMR systems, or from daily facility inspection rounds collected digitally within Sedaru. This data is then summarized, aggregated and analyzed to meet the utility's specifications.
