Some Good Tips To Save Water

Here are a few actions you can take to meet the goal of CCWD's Drought Management Program.

# Reduce the number of lawn and landscape watering days per week. Landscape irrigation accounts for more than half of most residential customers use.

# Mulch your shrub areas and deep-soak them monthly only. Get discounts on mulch through our Mulch, Mulch, Mulch program,.

# Replace inefficient fixtures such as toilets, washers and showerheads. Check for rebates at

# Stress your lawn areas. Lawns use the most water and are the easiest to come back.
