OWASA - Supply and Demand Graphs

It is really impressive to see how much we have reduced water consumption. What is not clear is how this was accomplished. Who reduced use and by how much? Across the board? Key players?

More water numbers....

Here are the latest numbers:

(March 02, 2008):
6.459 million gallons

(March 01, 2008):
6.439 million gallons

(February 29, 2008):
6.673 million gallons

These last two numbers are especially encouraging. I guess we really do not know if this is the result of the Stage 3 rules or just the result of people focusing more on water usage as a result of the added publicity given to the subject in connection with imposing those new restrictions.
