:: Conservation Corner
Thank you Scotts Valley for conserving water this past irrigation season! Your efforts have helped preserve our water supply.
It is important to keep all your water use efficiency practices up- that nice amount of rain we had in November, has obviously subsided.
Watering needs are reduced with shorter winter days, so please turn irrigation way down or completely off.
If you have toilets in your home or business that were installed prior to 1994, please read our ad below to see if you qualify for a FREE ultra-high efficiency toilet- and installation!
Here are directions to determine the flow of your toilets to see if you qualify for the program above:

:: Learn three ways to stabilize or reduce your water bill
1. Check for Leaks:
- By finding and checking the movement of the dial on your water meter. If there is no water running and your meter is- you have a leak.
- You can use our free home dye strips to test your toilets to see if they are leaking from the flapper (this can be a silent leak).
- If you don't want to do these yourself, call us for a Water Wise House Call- free for all of our customers. House Calls take about an hour and include free water saving devices. Call 438-2363 to schedule.
2. Use our
Water Use Forecaster
to see specifically how much water you are using with each fixture and appliance. You can also use it to anticipate your next bill or create a water budget. Your bill now has a bar graph that shows you how much water you've used in the last two years. You can log onto your account and look at your historical water use as far back as 1997.
3. Take Advantage of our Water-saving Rebates
for washers, toilets and now- six landscaping rebates- lawn and impervious pavement removal, and installation of drip irrigation, smart irrigation controllers, graywater or rainwater harvesting!
:: Look for EPA WaterSense Products
when buying new plumbing fixtures.
Regarding toilets, since January of 2014, CA state law
requires that new toilets must flush 1.28 gallons (gpf) or less. Rebates are only given for those types.
