The Conservation Department's main priorities are to promote water-use efficiency and prevent water waste. We work to achieve these goals through education, outreach, regulation, and when necessary, enforcement.
We are happy to make presentations at schools, clubs, or businesses. We reach out to our customers through public events as well as indoor plumbing and outdoor irrigation surveys. We provide rebates, free resources, guides, and tools whenever possible.
The Alliance for Water Efficiency (AWE), a non-profit organization dedicated to the efficient and sustainable use of water. AWE provides some fantastic tools including this handy water calculator that helps you determine how much water your household might use.
The California Water Efficiency Partnership (CALWEP, formerly CUWCC), a chapter of the AWE, fosters collaboration among a wide variety of stakeholders for research, training, legislative and regulatory information.
WaterSense, a partnership program with the U.S Environmental Protection Agency, seeks to protect the future of our nation’s water supply by offering people a simple way to use less water with water-efficient products, new homes, and services.
