The letter requests an extension for the public comment period through the end of January 2024, as well as expressing concerns on the following issues:
- Lack of robust water savings verification
- Inclusion of outdoor water conservation measures in the program
- The process of including offsets in the prohibition zone
- Inaccurate calculation of water savings based on household size
In addition, there were 7 questions for clarification or to identify errors in the proposed Title 19 Amendments that should be corrected.
