Symposium focuses on water conservation in Kern County


Making water conservation a way of life – that was the topic during a symposium, Tuesday, sponsored by the Water Association of Kern County.

The discussion focused on the challenges of complying with new state laws that will set water conservation targets for homeowners and businesses.

Experts say the bottom line is, beginning in 2022, we’ll all have to learn to make water conservation part of our daily lives.

“California has been struggling with this issue of water scarcity. Some of these changes are viewed by the state as being necessary. And one of the things they are looking at is changing residential water use behavior by setting limits on how much water a person can use in his or her home for indoor and outdoor use,” said Kevin McCusker of California Water Service.

For indoor water consumption, the rough target consumption is 55 gallons per person per day.
