Water Conservation

Due to the Coronavirus emergency, all in-home visits have been suspended.

It's a Dry Year. Please Save Water.

Saving water is more important than ever. Last year’s rainfall was far lower than average in our region, and this year’s rainy season is also below average so far. Because of this, the water supply in our reservoirs is low. Recent rainfall has not alleviated the possibility that our region may be entering a drought.

What You Can Do Now

  • Turn off your irrigation until Spring. Plants need much less water during the winter. Manually water only when the soil below the surface is dry.
  • Avoid watering landscapes during or within 48 hours following rainfall.
  • Use recirculated water in fountains and other decorative water features.
  • Replace turf with low-water-use plants. Please click this link for information on our Water Efficient Landscapes (WEL) Rebate Program. Click here.
  • Sweep instead of using a hose to clean sidewalks, driveways, and other hard-surfaced areas.
  • Use a shut-off nozzle on your hose when washing cars, boats, and other equipment.
  • Only run full loads of laundry and dishes.
