The Association of California Water Agencies (ACWA), California Municipal Utilities Association (CMUA), California Water Association (CWA), and CA-NV Section American Water Works Association (CA-NV AWWA) (collectively referred to as the “coalition”) appreciate the opportunity to submit written comments to the State Water Resources Control Board (State Water Board) on the Proposed Water Loss Performance Standards, regulation text and associated economic model (collectively referred to as the “Proposed Regulation”). ACWA represents over 460 local public water agencies that supply water for domestic, agricultural, and industrial uses to over 90 percent of California’s population. CMUA represents over 50 water agencies that deliver water to nearly 75 percent of Californians. CWA represents water agencies that provide drinking water to just over 15 percent of the State and are subject to the jurisdiction of the California Public Utilities Commission. CA-NV AWWA is a nonprofit association of drinking water professionals with approximately 4,700 members in California employed by over 470 agencies collectively providing drinking water to most residents and businesses in the state. Our associations’ members are entrusted with the responsibility of supplying the public with safe and reliable drinking water and will be tasked with implementing and complying with the Making Water Conservation a Way of Life legislation.
