Water Use Consultation


Yard - Landscape Rebate Consultation

Santa Monica must reduce its water use by 20% as part of the statewide water restrictions imposed earlier this year. Staying under your Water Use Allowance is the best way you can help Santa Monica meet this goal.

Those residents who use less than 22 HCF in single-family homes and 11 HCF per unit in multi-family buildings (per billing cycle) are already meeting the water conservation threshold.  

Your efforts to conserve water are key to Santa Monica’s success in beating this drought.
