The Spring Valley Water Company, an investor-owned water utility serving over 58,000 customers in Rockland County, New York, has developed a water conservation program that is sensitive to the environment in which it exists and to the customers it serves. The development of this multi-year, multi-phase program included: surveys of the Company's residential and commercial customers; a comprehensive review of conservation programs in the United States and Canada; an analysis of the Company's historical water use data and its projected demand/supply relationships; and, an assessment of external conditions, including weather patterns and restrictive plumbing fixture regulations, that affect water use.
