                                           Recognition Awards

On December 14, 2015, the City Council reduced the Water Emergency level from Stage 3 to Stage 1 and recognized the following local businesses for their conservation efforts:

  1. North Coast Brewing - "Innovation" Award for creatively identifying alternative water sources and contracting with the Westport Water District and a water hauler to test the concept of supplementing City water with an outside water source.
  2. Eggheads Restaurant - "Spirit" Award for their willingness and enthusiasm at doing everything they possibly could for as long as they possibly could to conserve water. The owners of Eggheads have actively participated with the City to help educate other restaurants about water conservation and the use of compostable dinnerware. Throughout the Stage 3 Water Emergency, they were great advocates for water conservation with the media, residents and fellow business owners.
  3. Colombi Laundromat - "Highest Water Savings" Award - a savings of 26%.
  4. Sherwood Oaks Health Center - "Highest Water Savings" Award - a savings of 31%.
  5. Silver's at the Wharf - "Highest Water Savings" Award - a savings of 33%.
