Help your trees survive
Anaheim City Council has implemented voluntary conservation measures and is encouraging all Anaheim consumers - residential, business and other customer classifications served by Anaheim Public Utilities - to help reduce water use in our community. As for most Southern California water agencies, water use efficiency has been and will continue to be a priority for Anaheim to improve water supply reliability. Since the early 1990’s, we have reduced growth in water use significantly through conservation efforts. In the last 25 years, Anaheim’s population has increased 30%, but our water use has decreased 10%. Conservation efforts have continued to reduce water in our growing City, so please explore our website to learn more about the tools that can help you be a part of these water savings.
Consider removing your live turf grass to help reduce your outdoor water use. We will pay you $3 per square foot of turf removed. More
Install a 'smart' irrigation timer/controller that can fully automate landscape watering based on weather and the actual water needs of your plants – and we'll even help pay for it! More
Install rotating nozzle sprinkler heads at $4 per nozzle, which water more slowly and uniformly to prevent over-watering using 20% less water. More
Choose trees that shade and cool the house during summer, then shed their leaves to allow in sunlight during the winter. More
Consider using 'California Friendly' plants in your garden to reduce your outdoor water use. These plant species are low water users and easy to maintain. More
Install artificial turf which feels and looks like real grass, but without all the maintenance and water use. Artificial turf is durable, safe, keeps your lawn looking green and well manicured all year long, and requires no mowing, watering or chemicals. More
