Water Conservation

Water conservation is the most cost-effective and environmentally sound way to reduce our demand for water. Using less water also puts less pressure on our sewage treatment facilities, and uses less energy for water heating. Below are several resources that can make your home more water efficient.

It's time for Orange County residents to take back their sidewalks! Broken, misdirected or "overenthusiastic" sprinklers sometimes spray sidewalks or the street instead of lawns. This wastes water and carries litter and pollutants into our waterways. The Orange County Stormwater Program has developed a new website, Overwatering is Out, in collaboration with the Municipal Water District of Orange County, where residents can learn more about related irrigation system rebates, get tips for a drier sidewalk and a healthier yard, and find landscape related events taking place throughout the County.
