Dear Shareholders,

It’s been a very busy year for your Water Company. The Infrastructure Improvement Project has started the construction phase after much planning, and we are off to a bit of a slow start because of the weather. Mozingo, our contractor will begin in earnest very soon.

December Usage

Usage for the month of December was a little bit higher than last year, probably because more people came up to do some skiing and enjoy the Holidays. Last year we had very little snow up the hill at this time. I’ll run down the numbers for you.

December Usage

2013 4,097,000 gallons
2014 3,579,000
2015 4,057,000
2016 3,609,000
2017 3,497,000
2018 3,618,000

We have a 12% water savings compared to December 2013, the State Drought comparison year for reporting water usage.

Annual Usage

2013 56,114,000
2014 46,258,000
2015 37,293,000
2016 46,464,000
2017 46,920,000
2018 45,463,000

Usage has remained steady for the past 5 years, except for the drought year of 2015 when we were in stage 3 of our Drought Plan.

We have a 19% water savings for the year compared to 2013

Well production has also remained steady for the past 3 years. CCWD water purchased runs about half of total water delivered to our customers. Wishing all a great 2019David Hicks
