California remains in a drought and our water supplies are still low. SFPUC is asking customers to continue their water conservation efforts and to observe statewide outdoor water restrictions and Water-Efficient Guidelines for Landscape and Irrigation. For a typical San Francisco home, watering once or twice a week should meet the reduction goal of 10% and keep your plants alive. Refrain from watering within 48 hours of rain and turn off irrigation altogether when it rains. When watering, avoid runoff to sidewalks and streets. Limit driveway and patio washing to only when needed for health and safety purposes. Also consider fixing leaks and replacing inefficient showerheads, toilets, and clothes washers.
The SFPUC offers a number of free water conservation assistance programs to residential and commercial customers.
