News Conference – Reducing Water Bills through Wise Water Use

LITTLE ROCK —With recent high temperatures and little rainfall, water usage is at an all-time high.  High usage can put stress on consumer’s pocketbooks and high demand on the utility’s infrastructure.  Consumers and lawns alike will benefit from implementing water wise practices.

Central Arkansas Water (CAW) and the Pulaski County Extension Office are teaming up for a news conference at 9 a.m. Thursday, July 26, 2012, to heighten consumer awareness on ways to save money and use water wisely during this peak time of the summer.

“We are fortunate to have an abundant water supply in the metropolitan area; however, with higher utility bills during this summer season we can offer tips and strategies that can add up to decreased water usage and dollar savings for our customers,” states Graham W. Rich, P.E., CAW’s Chief Executive Officer.   “This is an excellent time for the utility to extend our commitment to service while educating our customers on avoiding Peak Time of Day demand and efficient outdoor water use for healthy landscapes.” 

Please join us at the utility’s main office, 221 East Capitol Avenue, in Little Rock as CAW and the County Extension Office demonstrate ways consumers can implement a plan to lower consumption and promote healthy landscapes during this period of high temperatures.
