As of May 26, 2020, IEUA has resumed its free Regional Water-Use Efficiency Programs. If you would like any information on water saving programs or rebates, please contact Lisa Morgan-Perales at lperales@ieua.org or contact the IEUA Water Use Efficiency Hotline at 909-993-1952.

The Inland Empire Utilities Agency (IEUA) was formed in 1950 to supply imported drinking water to the Chino Basin. Originally named the Chino Basin Municipal Water District, IEUA has been a leader in water supply planning and programs to protect the region’s vital water supplies for over fifty years.

Smart water planning starts with water saving efforts. Every gallon of water saved within the Chino Basin translates into reduced demand for expensive imported water supplies. By being more efficient, our community will increase the reliability of our existing water supplies and reduce the cost of imported water purchases. IEUA’s goal is to save over 25,000 acre-feet of water over the next twenty years through water-wise practices– that’s about 7% of our area’s current water use.

To achieve this water saving goal, IEUA is working closely with the following local retail water agencies: the cities of Chino, Chino Hills, Ontario, and Upland, Cucamonga Valley Water District, Monte Vista Water District, Fontana Water Company and the San Antonio Water Company.

Here’s How You Can Help Use Water Wisely – And Save Money on Your Water Bills

In partnership with the Metropolitan Water District, the State of California and the local retail water agencies of the Chino Basin, IEUA is offering special water saving rebates that will reward residential customers for using water efficient toilets, clothes washers and other appliances and reward business customers for using water brooms and installing other water efficient appliances.

In addition, IEUA is undertaking a native landscaping initiative to promote the use of native and other water efficient plants as well as the installation of water efficient irrigation systems. Look for our special water-wise programs in the schools, too, including water-wise gardens using native and California friendly plants and water-wise based stage productions from the National Theater for Children.
