Learn About Water Saving Tips

Water is California's most precious and natural resource. How we manage it today will affect nearly every aspect of our future. It’s easy for every Californian—young and old—to save water every day. The good news is there are lots of simple ways to reduce the amount of water that we use at home, both inside and outside. If we all work together, we can make a difference for California’s future. The Inland Empire Utilities Agency offers a variety of water saving tips and resources. Simple changes can add up to a lot of savings. Water landscape in the early morning hours, choose climate appropriate plants, place a layer of mulch around trees and plants to reduce evaporation and use a broom instead of a hose on the driveway. Saving water indoors can be as easy as turning off the water when brushing your teeth, installing water saving showerheads, taking shorter showers, fixing leaky faucets and plumbing fixtures and running the dishwasher only when full. These simple changes can add up to big water savings.

Visit the Chino Creek Wetlands and Educational Park

The Chino Creek Wetlands and Educational Park consists of 22 acres and 1.7 miles of trails that are landscaped with a wide variety of climate appropriate and low water use plants, and features a state-of-the-art irrigation management system. The park is open to the public to enjoy at their leisure during daylight hours as well as providing an educational experience to students through the Water Discovery Field Trip program. Some of the key components of the park are the community education elements that weave throughout the site. The park serves as a demonstration area for the community on improving water supply, stormwater treatment and water use efficiency. Additional park features include wetlands and riparian habitats, trails, sampling stations, picnic areas, visitor’s center, parking, bridges, and an amphitheater.


Learn about California's Drought

Last year, was the driest year in recorded history for many areas of California, and the State is still facing serious drought conditions. Water conservation is always important in California, but this year no Californian should waste even one drop of water. It is vital that everyone in California do their part to reduce their water use.

IEUA and its member agencies started ramping up their water use efficiency programs in January in response to the Governor’s Declaration of a Statewide drought on January 17, 2014. IEUA adopted a formal drought resolution on April 16, 2014, calling for extraordinary conservation actions to achieve a 20% reduction in water use. IEUA also supplies recycled water to replace the use of potable (drinkable) supplies for outdoor watering and other non-potable purposes.

In response to the issuance of a “Water Supply Alert” by the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California on imported water supplies, IEUA member agencies have implemented local water conservation ordinances that include mandatory water-use restrictions. To find out more about restrictions in your area, please contact your local water agency.
