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
- 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
