City Cancels 2nd Plant Shutdown Thanks to Residents’ Water Conservation

The City of Santa Barbara wishes to thank water customers for their above-and-beyond water conservation efforts during this past weekend.

The community’s tremendous response to the city’s request to conserve water over the past weekend allowed the contractor to complete all the work that was planned to take place over two weekend-long shutdowns of the Cater Water Treatment Plant. As a result, the second planned shutdown of the plant is no longer needed and has been canceled.

Over the three-day shutdown, the community as a whole reduced its normal water demand by approximately 20 percent, which equates to a savings of 5 million gallons of water. The reduction in water use helped ensure there were ample water supplies for everyone’s essential needs.

The city thanks everyone for their conservation efforts, which helped make the Cater Plant shutdown successful, eliminated the need for a second shutdown and saved 5 million gallons of water.

— Catherine Taylor is the water system manager for the City of Santa Barbara.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
