Goal Setting Information:
Date of Public Forum: 1/17/2008 Has goal been changed since last performance report? ()Yes (X) No
- Note: Goals must be re-established every 6 years through a public process.
- Customer Goal (Demand Side):
Describe Progress in Reaching Goals:
- Our goal through conservation measures is to limit previous 1% growth, over a rolling six year period as a measure of units of water per meter (previously 199 units per meter) to a 0.5% growth in sales to a six year rolling average of 198 units per meter in spite of a 1% growth in the number of meters.
- Customer (Demand Side) Goal Progress:
- Using inverted block rates, distributing water sprinkler gauges, conservation education through 'Word About Water' pages in Ruralite magazine, and distributing toilet leak detection kits, Parkland Light and Water Co. experience a drop to 181.01 units consumed per meter in the six year average including 2011.
- Additional Information Regarding Supply and Demand Side WUE Efforts
- Include any other information that describes how you and your customers use water efficiently:
- Supply goal: Reduce distribution loss from 18% to under 10% over a six year period through leak detection, customer leak notification and replacing aging meters with new more accurate meters.
- Progress: Parkland Light and Water Co. has replaced over 55% of our total 7,773 meters. Our intent was to be fully re-metered over the six year period of this report. However because of the economic recession we are dealing with, the intent is to increase our completion period to a ten year period. Our oldest meters are 30 years old and our oldest meters are the ones we are targeting. We estimated that as high as 5% loss in water sales can be experienced by older meters. The goal of replacing these older meters will be to account for an additional 5% in water consumption, thus reducing our DSL by the 5% level. Additional we have partnered with the Pierce County Water Cooperative Association (like minded water purveyors) and purchased 90 leak detectors. Parkland Light and Water Co. uses this equipment at least once a year to identify potential leak areas in our system. We have then contract with USA leak detectors to pin point the leaks identified by our leak detectors. In 2011 we identified 5 major leaks including 2 on Pacific Avenue.
