Water Conservation

The state of California’s main water sources have been severely impacted by record dry weather conditions.

Below are tips for conserving water and reducing  your bill:

  • Monitor your water bill for unusually high use. Your bill statement and water meter are tools that can help you discover leaks.
  • Water your lawn and garden in the morning or evening when temperatures are cooler, in order to minimize evaporation.
  • Use a broom instead of a hose to clean your driveway and sidewalk areas and save valuable water resources.
  • Shorten your average shower time by a just minute or two and you’ll save up to 150 gallons per month.
  • Upgrade older toilets with newer, more  water efficient models.
  • Turn off the water flow while brushing your teeth and save up to 25 gallons of water per month.
  • Washing dark clothes in cold water saves both water and energy, while also helping preserve your clothing’s  colors.
  • Turn off the water flow while  washing your hair and save up to 150 gallons of water per month.
