The City of Sacramento, with the Regional Water Authority, has launched a public-service campaign to thank residents and businesses for their outstanding water conservation efforts during California's historic drought and to encourage further reductions.

The campaign, which will be featured on the City’s web site and social media, will applaud residents as "Drought Champs," leading the City in water use reductions and asking them to conserve even more.

If you’d like to be highlighted on our digital media campaign, please let us know. We’ll need to double check your water savings, understand how much you’ve saved water, and get a photo of you. Send us an email at with your name, address, email, phone number, and how you have saved water; or send us a tweet with #DroughtChamps and let us know what you are doing to save.

Steps residents and businesses can take to conserve indoors include:

  • Utilizing the City’s rebate programs, River-friendly Landscaping program, toilets, clothes washers, dishwashers and aerators with high-efficiency models, or by upgrading water-wasting sprinklers and irrigation equipment..

  • Finding and quickly repairing leaky toilets and faucets. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency estimates that more than 10,000 gallons of water is wasted in homes each year because of leaks (enough water needed to wash 270 loads of laundry).
