Let’s pitch in to help California

Much of our state is suffering under extreme drought conditions, and while IRWD is well-positioned to weather these dry times, we can all do our part to help.

Gov. Gavin Newsom has asked all Californians to voluntarily reduce water use by 15%. You can do that by taking just a few steps that collectively add up to significant savings. According to the governor’s office, a 15% reduction statewide will save enough water to supply 1.7 million households for a year.

The most significant savings can be achieved outdoors. Generous rebates are available to help you transform your lawn into a beautiful landscape that flourishes with less water.

Right now, IRWD provides rebates of up to $3 per square foot of turf replaced by water-efficient landscaping. We’ll cover half the cost of new pressure-regulating spray bodies used to replace older, inefficient sprinklers. You can also get up to $255 for a weather-based irrigation controller. Visit RightScape.com for a full list of rebates available, or to view a gallery of water-efficient landscape design tips for inspiration.

Simple things inside your home can also save water. Fixing a leaky toilet can save up to 50 gallons a day. Reducing your shower from 10 minutes to 5 can save 10 gallons per shower. Washing full loads of laundry saves up to 16 gallons per load.
