Water Resources Division Reduces Energy Demands Amid Statewide Energy Crisis
By the City of Santa Barbara
In response to the current statewide energy crisis, the City Water Resources Division reduced energy demands at its three treatment plants: William B. Cater Water Treatment Plant, Charles E. Meyer Desalination Plant, and El Estero Water Resource Center on Monday, September 5 and Tuesday, September 6.
By taking these major operational steps during peak demand (between 4 p.m. and 9 p.m.) the three plants reduced citywide consumption by nearly 10%. The plants were still operating but at a condensed capacity and will continue to decrease energy as needed.
