Water Audits

 One of the most important things that a homeowner can do to save water is make sure that equipment is functioning appropriately and is efficient.  The City offers free Water Audits to help citizens find ways to use less water.   Water audits are performed during the spring and summer seasons when watering yards begins.  Watering your yard is the main way that water is lost either through over watering or inefficient systems.  The Water Conversation Specialist can also help someone with understanding water efficient appliances, conservation tools and leak detection, many times over the phone.
