Water Savings Tips

Landscape water-use efficiency activities are focused on reducing outdoor water use, particularly during summer months when demand for water reaches its peak.

From June through September, approximately half of the water used citywide is applied to landscapes. It is our goal to help customers conserve water while maintaining healthy and beautiful landscapes.

Indoor water-use efficiency activities are focused on reducing indoor water use all year.

Efficient indoor water fixtures will save you time and money. Checking your indoor plumbing for leaks on a regular basis will allow you to catch leaks early and save money.
