Governor Brown has asked all Californians to reduce their water consumption by 20 percent due to the drought. He has also directed all state agencies to immediately reduce their water use and a moratorium has been placed on new, non-essential landscaping projects at state facilities and on state highways and roads.
That is where YOU come in! Please join us by becoming a “water watcher” by keeping an eye out to ensure that water is being used effectively at state facilities.
Just like at your home, sometimes government facilities have a broken sprinkler or are watering the concrete instead of greenery without being aware of the problem. If you see water being wasted at a state facility, please fill out the form below to alert state managers to the issue.
Please note: The “water watcher” email form applies to state-owned properties ONLY. If you are reporting inefficient watering at a locally-owned business, local park, private residence, or another non state-owned property, please contact your local water district. If you are reporting inefficient water use at city-owned or county-owned properties, please contact either city hall or the board of supervisors respectively.
