Bakersfield, California 2021-07-23 20:11:00 –
The city of Bakersfield is urging customers to reduce their water usage by 15% following Governor Gavin Newsom’s Drought Declaration on July 8.
“We are committed to working with our customers to help save water every day to ensure a reliable water supply,” the city said in a news release on Friday. “Our customers have done a great job of saving water when needed. We are grateful for their efforts. In the current drought situation, we maintain a limited water supply in California. To do this, we recommend that you continue to use water wisely. “
To reduce water usage, the city recommends that customers shorten their irrigation schedule by one day or irrigate within three days a week.
The city said in a release that irrigation only needs to be done for two minutes and the system needs to be checked once a month for leaks.
The city encouraged customers to purchase water-saving products such as garden hose nozzles with shut-off valves, high-efficiency showerheads, faucet aerators, and leak detection tablets. The city offers rebates for devices such as high efficiency toilets, washing machines and smart irrigation controllers.
