Stockton ‘must step up’

Just because Stockton can pump Delta water after all this summer, the city can and should do more to conserve water, says environmentalist Dale Stocking.

His words:

I believe Bob (Granberg, assistant director of the Municipal Utilities Department) and the City are giving the wrong message when they indicate that Stockton will not have a severe water problem now that the Delta Water Supply Project can again begin pumping…
I support the DWSP; however, Stockton and all of California need to begin reducing all water use.
We have stopped watering our lawn areas but are still watering the ornamentals.  I have put the last three years Cal Water usage on a spreadsheet and will be measuring how much water we save not watering just the lawn area.  Hopefully, it will be significant.
Bottom line, Stockton must step up and really work at lowering elective water usage.
