      Our Vision. Abundant clean water for human uses and environmental protection to sustain California's future. Our Mission. To preserve, enhance, and restore the quality of California's water resources and drinking water for the protection of the environment, public health, and all beneficial uses, and to ensure proper water resource allocation and efficient use, for the benefit of present and. Governments set water quality standards, issue water-use permits and ensure reliable supplies for the communities they serve. They also have the power to control consumption rates. Because it is the government’s responsibility to prepare for drought and emergency situations, most water agencies promote efficient water use and water conservation.

      Reducing your water use has multiple benefits. In addition to helping to conserve and protect your community’s vital water supplies, saving water also helps you save money and energy. The following sections outline the flow thresholds to look for when selecting ultra-low water-use, high-efficiency toilets, showerheads, and faucets. Water Management Districts or Utilities Your local water management district often can provide information on water conservation, including water efficient landscaping practices. Your city, town, or county water management district can be found in the Blue Pages section of your local phone book or through your city, town, or county's Web site.

      Southern California Rebate Program. Water and energy use conservation program. Due to California's conservation initiative, we are offering various water and energy saving home improvement rebates and incentives for Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino and Ventura County homeowners wishing to switch to energy/water saving home upgrades.   The visual comparison of the domestic water use and the rainwater use in Figure 7 shows that the volumes of rainwater used were generally less than the fluctuation in domestic water use from year to year, making reductions in domestic water use due to rainwater difficult to discern. A rank-sum test confirmed that, regardless of the size of the Cited by:

When a landscape or irrigation system is poorly designed or poorly maintained, or the landscape consists of plants not suited to the dry and often hot California climate, water demand increases as a result of excessive evaporation.

Water is a precious and limited resource, especially in drought-prone California where the next dry period could be right around the corner. As a result, water conservation and the efficient use of California’s water supply are major priorities for the State.

Find a Qualified Water Efficient Landscaper in your area. A QWEL certified professional will help meet landscape needs while keeping outdoor water use in check.

QWEL is an EPA WaterSense labeled certification program in irrigation system audits. QWEL has received national recognition from EPA WaterSense for continued efforts in promoting water. Water efficiency is reducing water wastage by measuring the amount of water required for a particular purpose and Efficient water use in California book amount of water used or delivered.

Water efficiency differs from water conservation in that it focuses on reducing waste, not restricting use. Solutions for water efficiency focus not only on reducing the amount of potable water used, but also on reducing the use of non-potable.
