It's always a good time to save water
Because we live in a semi-arid region with a growing population, conservation needs to become our way of life. In addition, about half of the water in the county is imported from outside the county and imported supplies continue to be limited due to regulatory restrictions and a growing pressure on the state’s water delivery system. To ensure that we have a reliable water supply today and in the future, we all need to use our water wisely. Click here for more information about our water supply trends.

A Water-Wise House Call is a free home water use survey that helps identify opportunities where you can conserve.

What are the benefits of a Water-Wise House Call?
In addition to possibly lowering your water bill, you will have the satisfaction of knowing you are using a precious resource efficiently. Less water down the drain also means that you are willing to help protect the bay’s salt marsh habitat and its endangered species.
During a Water-Wise House Call, a surveyor will:
- Replace leaking toilet flapper valves if needed and requested.
- Measure your showerhead flow rates and install free showerheads if needed and requested.
- Measure faucet flow rates and provide faucet aerators for kitchens and bathrooms.
- Evaluate the efficiency of your irrigation system.
- Provide you with a personalized irrigation schedule.
- Identify irrigation leaks, broken or mismatched sprinkler heads, high water pressure, and other common irrigation problems.
- Develop a prioritized list of how you can start using water as efficiently as possible.
