It’s easy to be green. Switch to a low-flow shower head and save hundreds of gallons of water per month. A helpful tip from Chula Vista CLEAN Businesses. Live green, shop green.
San Diego County’s dry climate and limited rainfall requires most freshwater to be imported from outside the area, specifically from northern California and from the Colorado River. Due to the lack of a reliable local water source and increasing population size in the region, water conservation is especially necessary to protect against possible droughts and water shortages. In addition, local impacts from climate change are expected to further strain local water resources.
Improving water efficiency can also decrease pollution runoff, reduce energy use, and lower water/sewer costs. Help protect Chula Vista community's high quality of life by conserving this precious resource!
The Conservation Section collaborates with Chula Vista’s two local water providers, Otay Water District and Sweetwater Authority, to conserve water throughout the community by:
Providing water-saving information at weekly Farmers Markets at Otay Ranch Town Center (Tuesdays) and at the Third Avenue Village (Thursdays).
Offering free water efficiency evaluations for homes and businesses.
Promoting rebate programs for water-efficient plumbing and appliance upgrades.
