Residential Indoor Programs

Water conservation means modifying personal habits to reduce water use. Another word for conserve is save. Think of all the ways you and your family use water every day. You take a bath or a shower, wash the dishes, do laundry, cook, drink water, brush your teeth, shave, wash your face, and more. That’s a lot of water used every day. Since water plays such an important role in our lives, it is essential that we learn to use it wisely. The Orange County Utilities Water Division has incentive programs to help you with your indoor water savings.
