The Contra Costa Water District is excited to offer a new online portal called My Water Report where you can view detailed information about your water use. This new free tool will be available in January 2017.
Our new "Maintaining Your Water-Wise Landscape Facebook Group" is a forum for Contra Costa County residents to get and share advice on maintaining their water-wise landscapes. See what others have done, learn about workshops, rebates and more.
CCWD may be required to issue IRS 1099 tax forms to customers receiving rebates totaling $600 or more in a calendar year starting January 1, 2016.
We've added new photos of three Lawn to Garden projects to our page of completed projects.. We have "before and after" photos of 24 yards from throughout the District. Not only do they look great, but these gardens all save water.
In the photo, CCWD's Bob Eagle shakes hands with Mr. Martin Hawco of Concord, owner of the one-millionth square-foot that was converted from lawn to water-wide landscaping.
CCWD teamed up with the Ruth Bancroft Garden to produce two new videos that show you how to lose your lawn and gain a garden. They take you through all the steps, show how it's done, and get a rebate! Take a look!
The California Native Plant Database is one of the best sources we've ever seen for finding all kinds of native plants that will thrive in your yard. More than 2,000 plants are cataloged. Take a look, and grow the plants that belong where you live.
The High-Efficiency Washing Machine Rebate Program provides a combined rebate of up to $150 from the Contra Costa Water District (CCWD) and PG&E for District customers who purchase qualified high-efficiency clothes washers.
Stop by our office, and you can pick up some free water-saving devices like a shower head, hose nozzle, aerators or dye tablets for your toilets.
CCWD is undergoing its annual review of rates and charges that support the delivery of safe and reliable water to your home or business.
Freezing temperatures can cause expensive and wasteful problems for your water pipes. The best thing to do is to make sure they are protected from the cold. We have some tips to keep your pipes from getting frozen, and ways to defrost them if they do.
Many people who converted their lawns to gardens planted bunch grass. To keep it beautiful and healthy, you should trim it once a year. In our new short video, CCWD's Chris Dundon shows you how easy it is.
See how we use a huge radio-controlled sled to clean a portion of the Contra Costa Canal. It acts like a giant squeegee to scrub mud and grime out of the canal twice a year.
We've added three homes to our page of Lawn to Garden projects completed within the Contra Costa Water District. We now have "before and after" photos of 24 homes throughout the District. Not only do they look great, but these gardens save water.
CCWD announced it has signed a settlement agreement with the California Department of Water Resources that will protect District customers,facilities,and operations if the Bay Delta Conservation Plan/California WaterFix, aka the “twin tunnels”, is built.
The CCWD reminds customers to watch out for imposters representing themselves as water district employees (or another utility representative) to scam area residents.
Continued drought conditions prompt unprecedented action locally and statewide. Start saving water now.
