Efficient water use is an important step all of Sacramento needs to take to protect our water supply. Severe drought conditions have prompted the City of Sacramento to initiate a water alert. Residents and businesses are encouraged to reduce their water use.
The city can help Sacramento residents and businesses find ways to reduce their water waste and make a difference during this drought. Plus, when you save water, you lower your costs — that’s good for your home, customers or business!
What You Can Do
Start with simple steps like adjusting landscape watering times, tracking water use and fixing leaks. These small changes can make big impacts when it comes to reducing water waste.
City water customers can take advantage of rebates for converting their landscapes to drought-tolerant options, upgrading old irrigation systems and installing a smart controller. Rebates are also available for upgrades to toilets, urinals, faucets and more. For a full list of rebates, visit CityofSacramento.org/drought.

What Are We Doing?
How is the City of Sacramento reducing its water use? We’re reducing water waste by ceasing non-essential watering for city-led programs, cutting back on irrigation in parks and relying more on groundwater wells, which leaves more water in the Sacramento and American rivers for the environment.
Making conservation a way of life is an important step in preserving one of Sacramento’s most important resources: water. We’re all in this together. Drought is here. Save Water. Learn how at CityofSacramento.org/drought.
