More Calgarians using less water, says city report

Calgarians are becoming more water-savvy as the years go on, according to the city’s latest water efficiency report.

Calgarians are becoming more water-savvy as the years go on, according to the city’s latest water efficiency report.

Calgary continues to stay below 2003 water usage levels, even though there are 120,000 more Calgarians using water, the city said, adding they are on track to meet its goal to reduce water consumption by 30 per cent over 30 years.

“City technology incentives, programs and education campaigns are helping Calgarians use water more wisely in the home and in business,” said Nancy?Stalker, of the water resources department.

While the results were positive, the city would still like to see more growth in universal water metering.

Currently 82 per cent of Calgarians have meters, but there are still 53,400 flat rate accounts. The city installed 9,000 new water meters in 2008.
