Water Use Restriction

Customers Encouraged to Conserve

In response to the statewide drought, HDWD reminds customers to use water wisely as it's a way of life. While we assure you that our water supplies remain sufficient to meet local demands, maintaining a water-efficient lifestyle will always be necessary. Drought conditions in California mean waste and unreasonable use of water are prohibited.

Customers are encouraged to conserve with a 10% reduction in water usage - a great way to do your part AND lower your water bill. Did you know the water rates are based on water usage? The more you use, the more you pay.

There are simple and easy things you can do to save water: take a shower to the length of one 3-5 minute song, turn off the water when brushing your teeth, and check for and fix leaks. Small habits add up to big water savings.

Let's continue to be proactive in our efforts to reduce consumption and improve water use efficiency!

Please note: HDWD is currently operating in Stage 1 - Water Alert of the District's Water Use Restrictions policy. For more information on this policy, please click on the following link:
