Check Your Water


As the drought continues, California is preparing for the possibility of ongoing hotter, drier conditions. With that, comes the potential for water allocations to be put in place meaning that the amount of imported water available to water agencies may be reduced.

In recent months, we asked you to save water with #Rancho15, and you’ve done a great job! It is important to continue these efforts to save 15% of your water every month. By proactively reducing our water needs, we are better prepared to respond to the likelihood of additional water restrictions.

You can find easy ways to save water around your house below.
