New Study: Utility Water Conservation Programs Save Water, Lower Customer Bills

SAN JOSE, Calif., April 06, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- California Water Service (Cal Water), the largest water utility regulated by the California Public Utilities Commission, released a new study today demonstrating that its water conservation efforts from 2008 to 2019 significantly lo...

SAN JOSE, Calif., April 06, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- California Water Service (Cal Water), the largest water utility regulated by the California Public Utilities Commission, released a new study today demonstrating that its water conservation efforts from 2008 to 2019 significantly lowered water use, which decreased operating costs and in turn reduced customer bills by as much as 20 percent from what they would have been without the conservation efforts.

Water conservation has been shown time and again to be the lowest-cost source of supply, because when less water is used, costly investments required to produce additional water supplies can be deferred and potentially avoided. This study, “The Economic Value of Water Efficiency,” is yet another proof point showing that water conservation promotes affordability.

Because of its commitment to both water conservation and affordability for customers, Cal Water supports SB 1469 (Sens. Bradford/Becker, Asm. Rivas), a bill that allows water utilities to implement decoupling. Decoupling is a tool that ensures that water utilities do not benefit when they sell more water.

Cal Water substantially increased its water conservation efforts beginning in 2008, when the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) allowed the company to establish a pilot program that implemented decoupling. An August 2020 decision by the CPUC ordered that decoupling would end beginning in 2023. Passage of SB 1469 would allow this valuable mechanism to continue and enable utilities to continue to promote conservation, which is especially critical in California given the drought environment.

“As California learns to adapt to more frequent and severe droughts and aims to make conservation a way of life, it is critical we better understand and leverage policies and conservation practices that result in the most bang for the buck,” said Martin A. Kropelnicki, President and CEO. “Our study shows that conservation practices work to not only save water, but also save customers money. Passage of SB 1469 will ensure we are able to keep our focus on water conservation efforts that will be critical to adapting to climate change and, at the same time, improve water affordability.”

“SB 1469 is common-sense policy. We know decoupling will help lower water use, we know customers will pay less when they use less water, and we know conservation is the most cost-effective way to increase water supplies,” said Senator Steven Bradford, D-Gardena. “This is a classic win-win-win bill.”

“California needs to take strong action to address ongoing drought and climate change,” said Senator Josh Becker, D-Peninsula. “Decoupling has a proven track record of decreasing water use and lowering water bills.”

The water conservation initiatives supported by SB 1469 not only help water suppliers adapt to climate change but are also an important tool to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. California’s Department of Water Resources estimates that about 12 percent of California’s total energy use is related to water, including pumping, treatment, and distribution. Reducing the amount of water used creates a corresponding reduction in energy use.

“This study demonstrates that Cal Water’s investments in water efficiency not only saved water but also saved customers money on their water bills, and the results align with similar analyses the Alliance for Water Efficiency has conducted for Los Angeles; Tucson, Ariz.; and other communities,” said Ron Burke, President and CEO of the Alliance for Water Efficiency. “Passage of SB 1469 is needed to ensure water agencies aren’t penalized for water efficiency programs that address California’s water crisis and lower water bills.”

There is empirical proof that utilities with decoupling mechanisms are better able to promote and achieve significant levels of water conservation than those without. A peer-reviewed study of California’s last drought found that CPUC-regulated water suppliers that were able to implement decoupling “adopted more aggressive conservation measures, were more likely to meet state conservation standards, and conserved more water.”1

“Conservation is the most cost-effective means of ensuring there are sufficient water supplies for both people and our environment,” concluded Kropelnicki. “SB 1469 will encourage conservation and benefit customers, the environment, and fulfill Cal Water’s commitment to enhancing the quality of life in the communities it serves.”

Details about the Study

In this new study, third-party experts A & N Technical Services, Inc., in collaboration with M.Cubed, analyzed water usage, operating costs, and customer bill impacts between 2010 and 2019 in five of its diverse service areas, after Cal Water implemented tiered water rates, converted additional customers from flat-rate to metered service, and substantially expanded its conservation programs.

The study evaluated Cal Water’s Bakersfield, Chico, East Los Angeles, Selma (Fresno County), and South San Francisco service areas. They were chosen because they span the diversity within Cal Water’s districts in terms of geography, climate, supply sources, and socio-demographics.

Despite these differences, the analysis found that customers in all service areas reduced water use and saved money; however, regions that relied on more expensive surface water benefited most.

Table ES-1 Results: Estimated Percentage Reduction in Customer Bills

Service AreaEstimated 2010-19Cumulative OperatingCosts w/o Conservation(in millions)Actual 2010-19CumulativeOperating Costs(in millions)Percent BillReduction Due toConservation, 2010-2019
Bakersfield$813.9$788.0-3.2%

Selma$58.0$54.5-6.0%
East Los Angeles$447.9$359.0-19.9%
South San Francisco$275.8$234.5-15.0%

Bakersfield, Chico, and Selma showed a lower savings rate than East Los Angeles and South San Francisco because those areas rely more on local groundwater. Groundwater costs will likely increase significantly, however, given overdraft concerns and regulatory changes expected to require substantial future capital investments in new sources of surface or recycled water supplies.

Former Washington Union High School football coach Art Francis was named by Selma Unified School District trustees during closed session of the Monday, Jan. 24 board meeting.

Francis replaces Matt Logue as the head coach and physical education teacher at the high school. Ironically, Francis’ Washington Union football team faced Logue and the Bears in the 2019 Division IV Central Section championship game, won by the Bears.

“I am excited about being a new coach. The program is already in a good place. My goal is to continue to rise up with these young men,” Francis said. “The community is awesome, and it is a football community, and I can’t wait to be a part of it.”

Logue left to become the head coach at Sanger High School after spending seven years rebuilding the Selma High program. He helped lead the Bears to two Division IV Championships (2016 and 2019).

Francis attended Firebaugh High School and then attended Fresno State where he played football for the Bulldogs. After graduating, Coach Francis became a graduate assistant under Head Coach Jim Sweeney. After completing the graduate program at Fresno State, Coach Francis spent 21 years coaching football in Clovis Unified before taking the Head Coaching position at Washington Union. Most recently, he focused on strength and conditioning of multisport athletes at Clovis East High School.

Selma High School Athletic Director Randy Esraelian reports that Francis was nearly hired for the coaching job when Logue was eventually selected.

“We are eager to begin a new era of Selma High Football with Coach Francis. He brings a wealth of football knowledge and experience to our football program and his knowledge of strength and conditioning will benefit all our programs,” said Scott Pickle, Selma High Head Coach in a statement released by the school. “His passion and enthusiasm for the game of football is contagious. Our student-athletes are fortunate to have him as their head coach.”

Francis said he liked the small-town community aspect of Selma and that is one thing that led him to applying for the job.

“I have always thought I wanted to end up in smaller town and Selma was one town I identified. I knew that I wanted to take over a one-horse town, a town that had one high school,” Francis said. “I saw the community support for football and the athletes that are here, and it seemed like a great fit for me.”

Francis can’t wait to start his tenure as coach for the Bears and hopes to continue the success of the program.

“I want it to be a complete program that helps develop kids from elementary to 12th grade. I want it to a football program the town can be proud of,” Francis said. “More importantly, I want to help build athletes and students to be successful in life and develop in life. Have them learn the life lessons and become better people and learn accountability.”

Selma Unified and Clovis Unified School Districts offering free COVID rapid tests

FRESNO COUNTY, Calif. (FOX26 NEWS) — Some Central Valley schools are preparing for a potential COVID surge and are hoping to stop the spread before it starts.

Both the Selma Unified and Clovis Unified School Districts are giving out free rapid tests for students and staff to take before they return to class following winter break.

There was a spike in coronavirus cases after the holidays last year, and we’ve already seen a spike following Thanksgiving this year. Kids are going home for winter break soon, and their schools are trying to get ahead of things.

The California Department of Public Health gave school districts the ooption to offer at-home rapid tests for their staff and students.

Wayne Dixon, the Director of Pupil Services for Selma Unified School District, says the knowledge of whether you have the virus goes a long way to stop the spread.

“How can we help people be aware of what’s going on, but also help people to stay healthy?” Dixon said, talking about the goal of the tests.

Kristi Garcia is a teacher in Selma and showed up to grab her test kit Wednesday.

“I decided to come because it was something that was offered to us, and I thought since we’re going to be out of school, I might as well take advantage of it.”

The kits the schools send you home with include two tests.

Clovis Unified asked that people use the first test three days before school, and the second one the day before school starts again.

Selma Unified says to take one on January 6th and another on January 9th.

“I think it’s great,” said Garcia. “It’s super helpful. As long as a large majority of people participate, it’ll make going back to school so much easier.”

The schools also still have masking policies and strict rules following possible exposure or display of symptoms.

“We hired 9 staff members that are just doing COVID testing, contact tracing, and they’re working with our certificated school nurses,” said Garcia. Selma Unified also offers counseling and therapy dogs.

All of that is an effort to keep schools open.

If the virus gets out of hand again, students could have to go back to remote learning.

Stopping the spread by finding out about positive cases early helps prevent that.

“If they’re not at school, they’re not learning. And the difficult times they’ve had, and one of the most important parts is socialization,” said Dixon.

If you weren’t able to pick up the tests Wednesday, for Selma Unified you can still register online and have the kits sent home with your kids Friday.

There will also be other pickup days before school starts.

The Clovis Unified School District says the self-test results can’t be used in place of a test verified by a medical professional, but instead are meant to simply provide an extra layer of protection.

Fernando Santillan was appointed the City Manager of Selma on Dec. 8 and since then he has been hard at work.

Santillan is no stranger to Selma after previously serving as the Deputy City Manager and Community Development Director for the City of Selma since Feb. 2021.

The Enterprise-Recorder recently talked to Santillan, who spent the previous six years before his time in Selma as the Community and Economic Director for the City of Avenal, about his vision for the community.

Q: What plans do you hope to accomplish as the City Manager?

A: One of my goals is to help Selma grow and improve the quality of life for all Selma residents. This includes more housing, more businesses, and more amenities that will make Selma the best place to live in Fresno County.

Q: Why was Selma a place you wanted to come to and accept this role?

A: I started in Selma as the Community Development Director and I accepted that position because Selma has such great potential to become the most desirable place to live in all of Fresno County. When I was appointed to the City Manager role, I happily accepted because I had already become familiar with so many great people, organizations, and agencies in Selma and I knew that by working together and developing a solid vision for the city, we could achieve great things for the community.

Q: Is there one major project that you are planning on working on first in your new role as City Manager?

A: We are working on so many exciting projects at the city that it is hard to pick just one, but in general our main priority is to build up our infrastructure which will help us develop enough housing and businesses to accommodate anyone who would like to live and work in Selma. We are also very focused on public safety and making sure that we are doing everything we can to keep Selma safe for all residents.

Q: For those that may not know your background, can you tell them a little about yourself?

A: I have a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration, Finance from California State University, Northridge. I started in government with the City of Fresno in the Economic Development Department because I wanted to help businesses grow and create jobs in the Central Valley. I was also part of the Fresno County Economic Development Corporation, where I helped attract businesses to Fresno County from all over the world. From there, I developed an interest in City Planning and eventually became the Community Development Director at the City of Avenal, where I worked for six years before coming to Selma.

Santillan said that he looks forward to the coming years and working with the residents of Selma.

“I am very excited about the opportunity to help Selma become a truly great city, and I’m looking forward to working together with our residents, community organizations, business owners and entrepreneurs, the City of Selma staff, and our City Council to achieve this goal,” he said.

Santillan’s annual salary will be $188,000 and is effective from Dec. 8, 2021. The City Manager is appointed by the City Council and serves as the operational head of the City Government.

Selma Blair is having ‘the time of my life’ in remission from multiple sclerosis

Selma Blair, actor and advocate for multiple-sclerosis awareness, is ready to speak openly about living in remission from the chronic illness.

While promoting her forthcoming Discovery+ documentary at a panel hosted Monday by the Television Critics Assn., the “Cruel Intentions” star credited a stem cell transplant with successfully ending a painful, years-long MS flare that significantly impacted her speech and mobility.

“My prognosis is great,” she told reporters at the TCA event, according to People magazine. “Stem cell put me in remission. ... It took about a year after stem cell for the inflammation and lesions to really go down.”

Last October, the veteran performer confirmed via Instagram that her MS was in remission, two years after she went public with her diagnosis. In 2019, Blair underwent a hematopoietic stem cell transplant and chemotherapy in an effort to restore her immune system.

Though she has been in good health lately, Blair said Monday she was initially hesitant to discuss her recent progress after feeling “unwell and misunderstood for so long.

“I was reluctant to talk about it because I felt this need to be more healed and more fixed,” she said.

“I’ve accrued a lifetime of some baggage in the brain that still needs a little sorting out or accepting. That took me a minute to get to that acceptance. It doesn’t look like this for everyone.”

Blair participated in this week’s TCA programming to preview the upcoming film “Introducing, Selma Blair,” which documents the highs and lows of the TV and movie star’s challenging battle with MS.

Throughout her MS journey, Blair has used her platform to share her experience and educate others about the condition, which affects the central nervous system. Last week, she offered words of love and support to her “Sweetest Thing” costar Christina Applegate, who was recently diagnosed with the same disease.

“To hear even just me showing up with a cane or sharing something that might be embarrassing, it was a key for a lot of people in finding comfort in themselves and that means everything to me,” Blair said.

Directed by Rachel Fleit, “Introducing, Selma Blair” premieres Oct. 15 in theaters and Oct. 21 on Discovery+.

“I never really [liked] life,” Blair said Monday. “I do now — strange, huh? ... I was so scared in life. To suddenly start to find an identity and a safety in me, to figure out boundaries, time management and energy — I’m having the time of my life.”
