Small changes. Big savings. (October 4, 2015)

In July 2015, Californians reduced water use by 31.3%!

Did you know reducing your water usage not only conserves a natural resource, but may also save you money on your energy bill? In 2014, Governor Brown declared a statewide drought emergency and implemented mandatory water restrictions to reduce water usage in California by 25%. Below are a few water-saving tips to help you conserve.

  • Run full loads when washing dishes or doing laundry
  • Don’t let the water run when washing dishes by hand. Fill one basin with wash water and the other with rinse water
  • Turn faucets off when brushing your teeth or shaving
  • Repair leaky faucets quickly
  • Take shorter showers
  • Follow outdoor watering schedules
