The San Diego County Water Authority has released a new online tool that helps residents estimate how much water they use in their homes and provides practical tips for conserving the regionís most precious natural resource.
Click here to access the residential household water use calculator.
The Water Conservation Program provides San Diegans with information, tools, programs and other resources to assist in saving water. From the free Water Survey Program to the Landscape Watering Calculator to the newly introduced residential household water use calculator, we want to help you conserve. In the blue column to the left you will find links to our water conservation programs.
Report Water Waste
Have you seen an instance of water waste? Perhaps it is a broken sprinkler head or an irrigation system timer that is set to water too long. We would like to hear about it so we can contact the owners/operators of the system and make them aware of the problem. In addition, chronic wasters could be fined.
Just send us the location and the date and time you observed the problem. It would be helpful if you included your contact information in case any follow up is needed, but you may also let us know if you would like your report to be anonymous. Either send us an email or call us at (619) 515-3500 (press 5) or (619) 533-4649. You may also print a copy of our Prevent Water Waste flyer (PDF) and leave it at the location where water waste was observed.
Help Us Reduce Our Water Use
The City is committed to leading by example and to conserving water use within every department. City efficiency programs have resulted in major water savings, primarily due to the efforts of the Park and Recreation Department.
There is still more work to be done. If you have a suggestion for how the City can conserve water, or see an instance of water waste on City property, either send us an email or call us at (619) 515-3500 (press 5) or (619) 533-4649.
For more information, brochures, pamphlets, etc., call (619) 515-3500 (press 5), or email us at email@example.com.
