Conservation is a Way of Life

Hand holding small globe of Earth.

On May 31, 2018, then Governor Jerry Brown signed two long-term water use efficiency and conservation bills, collectively known as “Making Conservation a Way of Life.” These led to regulations being developed by the California State Water Resources Control Board which set a water-use target for each water supplier that must be met starting in 2024. Like other water providers, MVWD will be evaluated on its residential indoor water use; residential outdoor water use; commercial or business landscape use; and system water loss (leaks). Failure to meet the comprehensive water-use target may result in fines to the water agency for noncompliance.

MVWD customers play a key role in helping the community meet its water-use target. Retrofitting outdated plumbing fixtures or appliances with new water-efficient ones can help save water. (MVWD offers rebates for many of those fixtures and devices.) Additionally, landscape transformations can cut water use significantly when thirsty lawns are removed and replaced with California native landscaping. (MVWD has rebates, programs and resources programs available to help with landscape transformation projects.)

Learn more about MVWD’s rebates and programs by calling (909) 267-2130 or visiting www.mvwd.org/programs.
