"April offered near-normal temperatures but abnormally low precipitation across Washington. With the early loss of snowpack on the eastern slope of the Cascades, coupled with meager rainfall statewide, much of the state ended the month showing mild, moderate, or severe drought conditions. The State Climatologist’s May newsletter provides details, as well as a review of the past winter and a, peek at the state’s climate outlook".

It's a pleasure to see customers' reactions to seeing their water bills come down significantly on our water conservation program. Give us a challenge and we will meet it.
Remember; one of the most important reasons for a cooling tower is to save water - think about that for a while - think primary reason not what all the other duties of a cooling tower are.
Remember, one gallon down the drain unnecessarily will cost you ~ $8K a year in most cities. Email me if you need to find out why
It may be a prudent course of action to prepare for more water use in cooling tower operation [higher bleed rates] with well water kicking in early this year in the Tolt & Cedar water shed which may also affect North Pugent Sound's water shed.
Your chemical program will be dramatically affected by the introduction of early well water infusion into the main Watershed Supply for all facilities using cooling towers and boilers. Our surface water i.e. watershed [Snow Melt] is perfect for the Pacific Northwest on a chemical program, however when well water is introduced [happens every year during summer months], you will be using far more water to maintain the properties of chemical limits and its related chemistry. This includes all elerto-mechemical devices.
Your bleed rates could go up as much as 10 to 20% during well water usage. However, I program does not care about well water, in fact we would prefer it more then watershed water. We can maintain less than 2% at all times regardless of the infusion of well water into the Watershed Supply. Your bleed rates could go up as much as 10 to 20% doing well water usage.

LET's DO THE MATH... 1.0 gallon of dripping water a minute ↱GPM↰ normally "unseen" is not helping with good water use. Okay, there is 1440min/day with 365days/yr ↝ 565,600 gallons a year and when you are paying ~$15/1000gal, or more (commercial - includes sewer) that would be an annual bill in excess of $8,475.
WOW - fix the problem and give everyone a little more bonus for Christmas or have a great Christmas party for all.
