Water Conservation

 

Conservation is key, and the City of Pomona appreciates you "doing your part" to conserve our land's precious resource.  WIth rain in the forecast unknown and the drought headed into its 4th year conserving water shouldn't be viewed as a temporary aciton, instead we as a community, must change the way in which we use water.

KEY THINGS TO CONSIDER

If the limited outdoor watering days are creating brown patches on your lawn, consider placing drought tolerant plants in hard to water are.  Rebates area available for Pomona at www.socalwatersmart.com

The following tips are provided by the City of Pomona to encourage the community to reduce their water use:

OUTDOOR TIPS:

  • Choose climate appropriate and drought-resistant trees and plants.
  • Water early in the morning or later in the evening when temperatures are cooler.
  • Check sprinkler systems frequently and adjust sprinklers so only the lawn is watered and not the house, sidewalk or street.
  • Adjust sprinklers to avoid unnecessary overspray.
  • Install a more-efficient irrigation system such as drip irrigation for trees, shrubs, and flowers.
  • Adjust irrigation controllers, seasonally.
  • Water more frequently in shorter schedules to create healthier and stronger landscapes and reduce overspray and run-off.
  • Put 2-4 inches of mulch around trees and plants to reduce evaporation and keep the soil cool. Organic mulch also improves the soil and prevents weed growth.
  • Use a broom to clean driveways, sidewalks and patios. DO NOT use a hose to wash down.
  • Wash cars/boats with a bucket, sponge, and a hose with a self-closing nozzle.

INDOOR TIPS:

  • Use the washing machine for full loads only to save water and energy.
  • Purchase a qualifying high efficiency clothes washer and receive a $150 rebate.
  • Run the dishwasher only when full to save water and energy.
  • Install a water and energy efficient dishwasher.
  • Install aerators on the kitchen faucet to reduce flows to less than 1 gallon per minute.
  • Install high efficiency shower heads.
  • Take five minute showers instead of 10 minute showers.
  • Fill the bathtub halfway or less. 
  • Install a high-efficiency toilet.
  • Install aerators on bathroom faucets.
  • Turn water off when brushing teeth or shaving.
  • Don't use the toilet as a wastebasket.
