Water Wise Neighbor Program
A tailored program that walks the customer step-by-step through achieving maximum water savings for their home.
This program for new and existing single‐family residences provides Best Management Practices (BMPs) to help you become as water efficient as possible in the home. This voluntary program has three levels of participation.
Basic: Implement 80% of minimum BMPs that apply to your home and attend one Water Wise Neighbor class.
Advanced: Implement 90% of minimum BMPs that apply to your home and attend two Water Wise Neighbor classes.
Ambassador: Implement all of the minimum BMPs that apply to your home, attend five Water Wise Neighbor classes, and achieve at least 80 Ambassador criteria points. This level will be recognized by Orange County Utilities in a public forum.
