Water Audit Season Officially Opens

The City of Lake Oswego Water Conservation Program is now taking appointments for water audits. Lake Oswego water customers whose water usage typically hit Tier 2 or 3 in the summer are strongly encouraged to call and set up an appointment. During the visit to your home or business, the City's Water Conservation Professional, Kevin McCaleb will assess your water using equipment both inside and outside your  home; offering tips to help improve the way you manage your water. You will save money and water.

Residents that received an audit and followed through with some or all of the recommendations are enjoying summertime water savings exceeding 20% and more. If you have received an audit in previous years, you will not qualify for another.

This service is offered to any Lake Oswego water customer for free. To schedule an audit call Kevin at 503-675-3747.
