Serious Drought - Help Conserve Water!

California is experiencing the most severe drought in over 100 years.

It’s important
It's our future

As stewards of our own valuable local water resource, we have a responsibility to protect and use it wisely. Conserving water also helps save money, the more wisely you use water, the more you get out of each gallon that you purchase. This means you pay less without sacrificing any of the benefits.

We have rebate incentives and conservation tips to help you save water and money in your home, both indoors and outdoors in ways that won't impact the way you live.
