Maximizing capacity at the Budd Inlet Treatment Plant remains a LOTT priority, consistent with public values identified during LOTT's long-range planning process. To help accomplish that goal, LOTT works with the three City water utilities (Lacey, Olympia, and Tumwater) to plan conservation projects that cost-effectively reduce wastewater flows. Since the utilities started working together on this flow reduction program in 1997, program efforts have resulted in water conservation of over 1 million gallons per day.
An interagency Water Conservation Coordinating Committee plans and coordinates implementation of water conservation projects. Facilitated by LOTT's Public Communications Manager, the other members include water utility staff from Lacey, Olympia, and Tumwater.
Coordination Plan Update
The current Water Conservation Coordination Plan was adopted to guide the program from 2007 through 2012. The plan included a goal of reducing wastewater flow by a total of 1 million gallons per day by 2012. The goal was met as of August 1, 2012. Planning is now underway to establish a new goal to build on the success of these water conservation efforts. Plan activities are funded through LOTT's Capital Budget to support programs that reduce water going "down the drain" to the Treatment Plants.
offers and rebates The LOTT Alliance and the Cities of Lacey, Olympia, and Tumwater support water conservation programs to help our community address our wastewater treatment and water supply challenges.
