Home Water Audit Pilot Program

Through this program, the city is offering residents an opportunity to receive a comprehensive audit of their home and property’s water use. After the audit, they will receive a report detailing how water is used, identify improvements they can make to decrease water use, and direct them to existing programs and resources to support these efforts. 

The pilot program will take place in two phases, one in late February, focusing only on indoor water use, and a second in early summer, which will include indoor and outdoor water use. Program participation is available at no cost, availability is limited for both pilot phases. The purpose of the pilot program is to further the city’s water efficiency initiatives.
