Council Approves Two Positions to Focus on Water Conservation, Quality

Redwood City, CA - February 15, 2005 - At its regular meeting Monday night, the City Council of Redwood City approved two positions for the City’s Water Utility which will greatly enhance the Council’s efforts to increase water conservation and maintain water quality throughout the community. The approved positions are: water conservation specialist and water quality specialist.

The purposes of the two positions are to 1) strengthen the City’s ability to meet increasing regulations and public expectations about the quality of the water it delivers, and 2) to fully implement the Council’s landscape irrigation efficiency initiative. Both positions are funded through revenues from water bills, and are not part of the City’s general fund budget.

Water conservation is crucial to the community’s current and future water supply, and the City is working hard to provide people with the tools to save water, and save money at the same time. A significant part of this effort relates to large landscape irrigation, and the brand new conservation position will directly address this need, working with homeowner associations, property managers, and landscape contractors to maximize water efficiency in their irrigation programs.

The water quality specialist (a re-classified existing position) will oversee all aspects of water quality compliance for the City and provide specialized knowledge and skill for maintaining our high standards for water quality.

A great deal of information on the City’s water conservation efforts is available online. More information on water quality issues can be also be found on the City's website.
