Water is a critical part of California’s way of life. Our economy, our environment and our day-to-day lifestyle need water to flourish. But our water supply is limited. We can help make the most of it by using water wisely every day.
Saving water is not hard. We don’t have to go without beautiful landscaping or take fewer showers. We simply need to be smart about using what we have.
Rethinking the way we use water - both indoors and outdoors - will help stretch our limited supplies and ensure water is there when we need it. If we all work together, we can make a difference for California's future.
Follow our easy tips and start saving water every day.
