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

Water use evaluations are offered Monday through Friday. Time required to conduct the evaluation varies by the size and variety of the property’s water uses. To request a free Water Use Evaluation, email Conservation or call 925-688-8320. Please provide the following details:
