07-29-2019 – BCVWD Conservation Pocket Guide Helps Customers Save Money and Water

Do more than observe, conserve!

BCVWD customers can easily and quickly start saving water both inside and outside their homes. The new BCVWD fold-out pocket guide offers conservation tips and leak-check tricks for both inside and outside your home.

“Saving water is a vital part of ensuring a healthy and reliable water supply that meets the needs of our growing community,” said Board Director Andy Ramirez, on behalf of the BCVWD Board of Directors. “As a resident and board director living in this beautiful area, I encourage you to join me in conserving water with these helpful pocket guide tips.”

The guide features simple changes to your day-to-day routine that can have an effective impact, as well as ways to plan ahead for longer-term efforts. Some of the tips include:

Inside your home

  • Run the dishwasher and washing machine only when full
  • Buy a washing machine that adjusts the water level to the size of your load

Outside your home

  • Water in the early morning or late at night to reduce evaporation and turn off sprinklers when it rains, is windy or cloudy
  • Upgrade to a weather-based irrigation controller that automatically adjusts watering based on the weather

Leak-check tips

  • Check water heaters, dishwashers and refrigerators for condensation or puddling, which can signal a leak
  • Look for wet, soggy grass or puddles that keep forming in the same areas outside
