Do you ever see water running in the street from over watering landscape or a broken sprinkler, flooding in parking lots, or overflowing water fountains? With water being a precious commodity, we can’t afford this kind of water waste. The public are our eyes in the community and we rely on your communication to help stop water wasters. Therefore, the IWA is doing our part by having water crews investigate and address the source of water waste caused by:

  • Excess water runoff
  • Sprinklers pointed to water hard surfaces (i.e. sidewalk and roadway) instead of landscape
  • Watering while it is raining
  • Washing down driveway, sidewalk, or other hard surfaces
  • Watering too long or to often
  • Wasting water through leaks not repaired in a timely manner
  • Commercial car washing or pressure washing without collecting water to prevent run off to the street

    waste waterExcess water not only waste valuable water resources but also causes damage to sidewalks, curbs, gutters, and paving costing the tax payers extra financial resources every year.

    The goal of the water waste program is to make sure we solve the problem by teaching people how to do a better job of using water outdoors. To help customers use water wisely, the IWA offers free water audits and analyses of landscapes and irrigation systems.

Tougher enforcement of the City’s Water Waste Ordinance requires your help. To report broken sprinklers or water wasted in the streets, call the Environmental Hotline at (760) 391-4129. Please include the time of day you see water wasted and the address or cross streets of the location.
