About Us



The City of Sacramento's Department of Utilities’ Water Conservation team works to help Sacramento residents protect our water through efficiency. We educate, provide informational resources, and most importantly, we help reduce your water use and costs. Through our programs, residents and businesses can find various ways to reduce their consumption of water without compromising.

All of our programs contribute to achieving the goals and objective of the City's Water Conservation Plan, which:

  • Maximize opportunities to sustainably meet future water needs through cost-effective water conservation and water use efficiency
  • Identify strategies to reduce ratepayer costs for the treatment and delivery of water and the treatment of wastewater, reduce water-related energy consumption, and offset the need to construct water production capacity in the future
  • Maintain commitments to achieving 20 percent GPCD water use reduction statewide by 2020 and meet state and federal mandates
  • Demonstrate environmental stewardship and foster wise, innovative, responsible and efficient practices
  • Expand the current Water Conservation Program that further helps support the health of rivers and groundwater integral to the region’s quality of life.

Some of our programs include:
