Cascade Water Alliance commended its members and residents for contributing to the region’s collective reduction of its water use by 10 percent in the past two weeks, hitting the goal set by Everett, Seattle and Tacoma.
The regional water suppliers ask customers to continue their efforts to reduce water use to stretch water supplies until the rainy season. Updates on use will be issued every other week.
Cascade and its members — Bellevue, Kirkland, Issaquah, Redmond, Tukwila, and the Sammamish Plateau and Skyway water and sewer districts — get their drinking water from the Seattle water supply. Historic low river levels, combined with record-setting hot and dry weather have significantly increased the demand for water.
