Water Conservation

California’s main water sources have been severely impacted by record dry conditions. We’re already using our reserves to supply our everyday water. Our water situation is serious. Here is how you can help.

Indoor water conservation tips
What you can do How much you can save
Turn off water when you brush your teeth. 3 gallons a day
Shorten your showers by one or two minutes. 5 gallons a day
Fix leaky faucets 20 gallons a day
Wash only full loads of laundry 15 to 50 gallons a day

Talk to your family and friends about saving water. If everyone does a little, we all benefit a lot!

 

Outdoor water conservation tips
What you can do How much you can save
Water your yard before 8 a.m. 25 gallons a day
Install a smart sprinkler controller 40 gallons a day
Use a broom to clean driveways and sidewalks 150 gallons each time
Check your sprinkler system for leaks, broken sprinkler heads, and over spray. 500 gallons a month

Using organic mulch around plants will reduce evaporation and can save hundreds of gallons a year!
