Drought

The SFPUC, BAWSCA, and its member agencies are encouraging wise water use as summer begins after a dry season.  Water customers are asked to remain vigilant, particularly around outdoor water use.  The goal is to maintain summertime water use at no more than the pre-pandemic levels.  The SFPUC is asking water users in its service area to voluntarily reduce their water use.  The SFPUC’s goal is to maintain water use levels particularly during summer months, such that overall use does not exceed the levels seen in 2019.  Ways residents can reduce water use during the summer include routinely cutting irrigation time and reducing frequency of irrigation days, fixing leaks, and addressing irrigation problems like overspray.

 

The SFPUC’s ability to carryover water in in the reservoirs from one year to the next is made possible by the water users’ commitment to conservation.   

 

BAWSCA offers a wide range of programs and rebates to help water users reduce outdoor water use, ranging from turf replacement incentives, water efficient landscaping classes, low-flow fixture replacement rebates, and much more.  Visit our Water Conservation Portal for more information.
