Multi-Family Water Use Evaluation

PLEASE NOTE: Due to the COVID-19 emergency, our in-person Water Use Evaluations are on hold until further notice. Learn more about our new Water Wise Phone Consultations.

Water Use Evaluations for Multi-Family Customers

To help identify potential water saving opportunities and efficiency improvements, we offer free professional water use evaluations to all multi-family customers, such as apartment complexes and homeowners associations (HOAs), within our retail and wholesale service area.

The benefits of incorporating water efficiency upgrades are decreased operating costs through a reduction in water, energy, and potentially sewer charges. Multi-family customers who have followed our recommendations have seen a return on their investment in as little as a year.

You can request an evaluation of your property’s interior water use, landscape water use, or both.

During the evaluation, our trained staff will: 

  • Review the property’s water use and discuss water reduction goals
  • Evaluate interior water use by assessing a representative sample of residential unit fixtures, building appliances, and equipment
  • Recommend upgrades, improvements, and best management practices to improve interior and landscape water use efficiency
  • Provide free water-efficient aerators, showerheads, and toilet leak detection dye tablets
  • Recommend applicable rebate incentives
  • Review irrigated landscaping and provide a suggested watering schedule
