Landscape and Recycled Water Conservation Resources Maps

We've created a resource for California residents interested in conserving water in their landscapes. In this map, you'll find information published by your local municipalities and water utilities, including conservation practices, low-water plants, rebate programs, and more.  

As of December 2013, you can also find information about recycled water in your region. This may include upcoming or ongoing projects and tips on using recycled water in your landscapes.

The California drought has residents concerned about how to save water.  In fact, some homeowners have opted to turn off their outdoor watering system, and it’s not uncommon to see brown lawns. However, not watering a landscape means that many trees will slowly decline in health and could die. While lawns and flowers are easily replaced, a large shade tree takes many years to become established.
