Save Water, Save Money – Water Conservation Program

The cornerstone of the District’s water conservation program relies on customer education efforts through community outreach programs. Making water conservation a way of life in California is the new normal.

The District uses targeted seasonal conservation messaging and materials to educate and assist customers in reducing water use.

The District keeps conservation program costs to a minimum in order to keep overall District water rates among the lowest in the region. Below you will find helpful hints on how to monitor your water use and save money while saving our precious water resources.

Water Meters as a Tool – Reading Meters

Water meters can be an effective tool for understanding and monitoring your water use and detecting leaks.

You can track your water use by reading the meter from time to time and calculating how much water was used during the period. You can read the water meter before and after irrigation and measure exactly what is being used and where.

Resources For Leak Detection

Water leak detection is one of the easiest ways to reduce water waste. Did you know the average home can leak 25 to 30 gallons of water a day? Slow drips of water can add up quickly. Even small leaks can add up to thousands of gallons of water waste annually. Identifying and repairing water leaks is a great way to reduce the amount of water that is wasted in your home. And remember, repairing water leaks can save you money.

Old clothes washers use about 20% of indoor water use—up to 60 gallons per load of wash! The new high-efficiency washers use up to 50% less water and energy, and 2/3 less detergent. Most are large enough to wash bulky items like quilts, pillows and sleeping bags. In addition, they are gentle on clothing because clothes are tumbled and not agitated.
