Outdoor watering represents nearly 60%-70% of residential water usage in the Inland Southern California region. Reducing water consumption outside the home results in a larger water savings but this should not preclude water savings inside the home.
Water retailers along with Southern California residents can help offset water shortages by practicing water conservation daily. This can be done through modification of water-wasting activities inside and outside the home. Below are water conservation tips to assist residents and businesses with efficient ways to reduce water consumption which also results in a financial savings for the consumer.
