Climate in the Bear Valley, similar to the rest of California, cycles between wet and dry years. Our drinking water supply is groundwater pumped via wells, and even in years with a lot of precipitation, we still need to conserve water knowing that a dry cycle will return.
One way to help conserve water is by using Xeriscape, a water-wise landscaping method. Besides being an attractive and less demanding landscape, a properly maintained Xeriscape can help conserve a considerable amount of our limited water resources. We also offer rebate programs: toilet rebate and turf buyback. Low-flow showerheads and faucet aerators are available to all of our customers. Please come by the DWP office and pick up your free conservation devices.
There are several things you can do both inside and outside the home. The Conservation Department offers FREE indoor plumbing and outdoor irrigation surveys. We also provide water-saving devices for FREE. Visit the Conservation page for more links and information, or contact the Conservation Department.
