Complimentary Water Conservation Visits
Available to City Residents

 

Throughout the year, the City of Santa Maria Utilities Department offers complimentary home water conservation visits to City customers. A Water Conservation Specialist visits the home and evaluates fixtures for opportunities to save water (and money) both indoors and outdoors.

 

During a home water visit, the Water Conservation Specialist will:

 

  • Identify and describe the types of plumbing in the home;

  • Discuss common areas for potential leaks;

  • Evaluate monthly water consumption (use);

  • Describe the maintenance of irrigation systems as applicable;

  • Provide information about low-flow devices available to help conserve water;

  • Discuss any active State or County rebates or programs, if available; and

  • Share water conservation strategies for residents.

 

Water conservation kits will also be distributed to residents (while supplies last). The kits include: a low-flow showerhead, faucet aerators, kitchen swivel, fill-cycle diverter, leak detection tablets, toilet tank bank, and a flow meter bag with installation instructions.

 

To schedule a free home water visit, call the Utilities Department’s Water Conservation Specialist at (805) 925-0951 extension 7235.
