Water Conservation

schedule now!

Water is one of California’s most important and precious resources, as every living thing needs water to survive. Water conservation is a key link between balancing current and future water needs. 2015 was at the top of list of the driest years in California’s recorded history and that has everyone talking about ways to save water. The average home uses more than 200 gallons per day, a lot of which is unnecessarily wasted.

Water conservation means using less water or recycling used water so that it can be used again. This is important because water conservation helps save energy, protect wild animals, and prevent people from using so much water that it cannot be replaced with rain. Water conservation also helps people and governments save money. Following is a list of simple things home owners can do to support water conservation:

  • Only wash full loads of dishes or laundry.
  • Find and fix any leaky faucets.
  • Install efficient faucets and/or faucet aerators.
  • Turn off the faucet when lathering hands, shaving, or brushing teeth.
  • If an irrigation system is used, make sure it is properly set up and maintained.
  • Water early in the morning or later in the evening when temperatures are cooler.
  • Landscape with water-wise landscaping principles, using native plants or plants that require little water to thrive in your region.
  • Check water bills for any instances of high water use, as this may be an indication of a leak. Install low-flow toilets and shower heads. Most toilets installed before 1992 do not have the water-saving 1.6 gallon per flush.)
  • Know where your master shut-off valve is located. Were a pipe to burst, this could save gallons of water and damage.
