ROCKLAND COUNTY EXECUTIVE ED DAY, COUNTY LEGISLATURE URGE PARTICIPATION IN SUEZ WATER CONSERVATION STUDY
Residential Customers Encouraged To Complete Water Use Survey
NEW CITY, NY -- Rockland County Executive Ed Day and the Rockland County Legislature, in partnership with SUEZ, are encouraging residential customers to participate in a comprehensive water usage survey of consumer habits. The survey results will help SUEZ design more effective residential water conservation programs.
Randomly selected customers who complete the survey will receive a free report detailing how water is used in their household. It will include a breakdown of water use by month and by end use (toilet, shower, laundry, kitchen and outdoors). It will also show ratings comparing individual water use to established norms. The report will provide detailed recommendations for the customer to save water, energy and money in the future.
Residents may participate in one of two ways: (1) complete and return the paper form received in the mail, or (2) enter survey responses online via the Web address provided in the mailing. The survey takes about ten minutes to complete.
December 21 is the deadline to return the completed survey.
Said Rockland County Executive Ed Day, "Preserving natural resources is a responsibility we all share. I urge those who receive the SUEZ water usage survey to be accurate and prompt in responding. Results will provide a foundation for new conservation programs, enabling customers to use water more effectively and efficiently, leading to lower water and energy costs."
Legislator Harriet Cornell, Chair of Rockland's Task Force on Water Resources Management said, "I encourage residents to participate in this important study of water usage which will provide much-needed information - not only for SUEZ (formerly known as United Water), but also for the Water Task Force which is developing a long-term sustainable water plan that will keep water and energy costs down while ensuring an ample supply of quality drinking water for present and future needs."
