Mammoth Community Water District: Update on Conservation Efforts

MCWD UPDATE ON CONSERVATION EFFORTS AND WATER SUPPLY

Water demand drops 25% in August and groundwater pumping supplies almost 75% of MCWD water supply during this year’s drought. 
 
Mammoth Lakes, CA – Last month, Mammoth Community Water District customers made a significant effort to conserve water, and as a result, water demand dropped 25% from previous years.  This conservation effort from our customers contributes directly to maintaining a reliable water supply during the extended drought.  Our water supply consists of a mix of surface water and groundwater, and recycled water is used for golf-course irrigation.  With severely drought-limited surface water supplies this year, our groundwater supply has been essential to meet customer’s needs. Groundwater production has supplied almost 75% of our water supply during peak demand this summer, from 53% in June to 74% in July and August. Contributions from surface water and recycled water contributed 18% and 8% respectively.
Heavy reliance on groundwater pumping has stressed our wells and resulted in reducing the production capacity of two of our nine production wells.  The largest user of water, outdoor irrigation demand, is expected to decrease in September as the days shorten and cooler temperatures return.  We would like to thank our customers for the significant saving in water to date and request that conservation efforts continue.  Level 1 water restrictions are still in effect:
·         Even numbered addresses irrigate on MondayWednesday and Saturday
·         Odd numbered addresses irrigate on Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday
·         No irrigation between 10:00 am and 7:00 pm
·         A hose must be equipped with an automatic shut-off nozzle
·         No washing of hard surfaces is allowed unless for safety or health reasons
·         Leaks must be repaired within five days after notification from the MCWD
This year’s drought and heavy reliance on pumping underscores the importance of protecting our groundwater resources from potential adverse impacts of increased geothermal production by Ormat near our well locations.  These adverse impacts include polluting the groundwater and reducing the supply. The MCWD remains committed to pursuing a monitoring and mitigation plan for the geothermal plant expansion that protects our water resources and ensures the continued availability of a reliable water supply.
About Mammoth Community Water District 
MCWD provides water and wastewater utility service to the Town of Mammoth Lakes and surrounding areas.  MCWD strives to provide reliable, affordable utility service to our customers and to conduct our operations in a manner reflecting our stewardship role.  We encourage our customers to practice responsible use of our limited water resources, and to take advantage of the information and services available to support this goal.

Water Conservation Incentives from the City of Bishop

The City of Bishop offers a water conservation incentive program to help its water customers save water. The program can provide some water saving items free like hose nozzles and can provide rebates on other water saving items like new sprinkler systems.

Free items include automatic hose shutoff nozzles, hose timers, and
irrigation timers.

$100 rebates are available for water wasting toilets, washing machines, and dishwashers that are replaced with water saving models. A $250 rebate is available for new sprinkler systems.

Specific requirements are available at the city website or by contacting Bishop Public Works.

For most free items you just need to stop by the Bishop Public Works
office, fill out a short form, and pick them up. The incentives are available only to water customers of the City of Bishop and are limited to one per customer account.

Saving water saves money, reduces water rates, protects groundwater, is the right thing to do, and is now required by the state.

Contact the City of Bishop Department of Public Works at 873-8458 for more information on water conservation, the water conservation incentive program, and the City’s water system.

HIGH TECH PRODUCTS OF THE NOT-SO-DISTANT FUTURE

Google Glass Augmented Reality
Google Glass Augmented Reality

AltaOne members can now access some of the most cutting-edge technological tools to help manage their finances – MSC Online, mobile apps, BudgetPro, BillPayer, Popmoney, etc. Outside the AltaOne world, technology continues to explode. Products such as Google Glass — the amazing eyewear that conducts Google searches, snaps photos and videos and tracks trending news — are already here. 

Let us take a gander at what other items are on the horizon that are destined to “wow” the world.

The “Eye-Witness”

The Eye-Witness
The Eye-Witness

A portable retina scanner may soon be available to help fight identity theft and protect your personal security. The tiny device is only 5″ long x 3.5″ wide. The scanners can be used by financial institutions to identity members conducting transactions in an efficient and unassuming manner. Look for these devices to really take off when the technology is incorporated into a smartphone.

The Six-Million-Dollar … Finger?

Bionic Fingers Could Help Humans Get a Grip
Bionic Fingers Could Help Humans Get a Grip

How annoyed do you get when you realize the beer bottle is not a twist-off and you cannot find a bottle opener? Introducing “bionic fingers.”

These robotic devices, which are still just prototypes, simplify such tasks as peeling a banana and unscrewing bottle caps. Developed by MIT researchers, users wear the “supernumerary robotic fingers” on the wrist. The device is equipped with two “fingers” that move in-sync with the real fingers.

 Too Much Scale?

 Too Much Scale

As if stepping on a scale is not difficult enough for some folks. Now there is a scale that not only displays your weight — it also discloses your body mass index, heart rate and fat mass.

The Withings Smart Body Analyzer is quite the know-it-all. The $150 device also knows the indoor air quality and room temperature.

We will be far more impressed if the scale can tactfully recommend the right diet for users, as well.

Holographic Telepresence

Holographic Telepresence
Holographic Telepresence – Well, that’s a little creepy.

Just when we learned how to use video conferencing tools, the next incarnation has already arrived — holographic video conferencing.

“Holographic telepresence” transmits a 3-D moving image to each destination – giving the appearance that you are actually in the room with your associates.

The technology already exists for other purposes. For example, it has recreated deceased rapper Tupac Shakur’s image for a music festival.

The Polish company Leia (named after the Star Wars’ Princess Leia), has produced the Leia Display XL, which projects images onto a cloud of water vapor. This technology is destined to achieve widespread popularity. Expect to see it marketed within about a year.

We live in such intriguing times.
