The drought gripping the Folsom area has many area residents focused on their water usage.
Residents who would like to monitor their usage have a new tech-friendly option. The city of Folsom recently announced a partnership with Dropcountr, a program that provides quick access to personal water usage 24 hours a day seven days a week.
"Most people have no idea how much water they use,” says Don Smith, City of Folsom water conservation specialist. “... This is a quick and efficient tool to help monitor water use and evaluate your family’s conservation measures.”
The program is offered free to the first 5,000 customers who sign-up. The goal is to help residents see how much water they consume and what water conservation actions have a measurable impact, the city said in a news release.
Download the Dropcountr app from Apple or Google Play, or go to www.dropcountr.com to sign-up on a desktop computer. Residents will need their account number that is printed on Folsom utility bills.
Those with difficulty signing up, are asked to email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (916) 351-3590.
