Results From page 1 a 13.5 percent reduction in water usage in comparison to 2013. What is more interesting is that since 2012, when water ration- ing first began, water usage has decreased by over 30 percent. "I want to thank all the resi- dents for the efforts," Lawrence said. "People are responding, and we are educating people on the water restrictions." Catalina residents have respond- ed to the recent rationing system as the results show water usage in November and October is down to 101 acre feet in 2014 from the 152 acre feet usage of 2012. Not everyone is getting the hang of the new system with the amount of water violations recorded but the results show those are declin- ing also. In the past month there have been about 7-8 water usage viola- tions, said Lawrence. Out of all of Edison's clients on the Island only about nine percent have violated the phase two water rationing, which is roughly 95 cus- tomers. Lawrence says the violations have tapered off in the past two months, but those who have more than one violation recorded have faced the consequence. A second violation prompts the installation of a flow restricting device on the premises, and those 95 customers who have violated the water restrictions twice currently have such a device installed. "How many of those violations are from commercial businesses?" asked Mayor Anni Marshall. Lawrence replied that he did not have an exact number but the majority of violations stem from residences. With the majority of residents complying with the current water restrictions, Lawrence believes that the next phase can be held off until the summer of 2015 or longer if the current pace is kept. Lawrence also encouraged resi- dents to report any water violations that they might see. So far, five violations have been reported.
