The Santa Maria Utilities Department is offering free home visits to help residents conserve water.

SANTA MARIA, Calif. - The City of Santa Maria Utilities Department is offering complimentary home water conservation visits to City customers throughout the year.

During a home water visit, a Water Conservation Specialist will go to the customer's home and evaluate fixtures for opportunities to save water (and money).

Evaluations include:

  • Identifying and describing the types of plumbing in the home;
  • Discussing common areas for potential leaks;
  • Evaluating monthly water consumption (use);
  • Describing the maintenance of irrigation systems as applicable;
  • Providing information about low-flow devices available to help conserve water;
  • Discussing any active State or County rebates or programs, if available;
  • And sharing water conservation strategies for residents.

Water conservation kits will also be distributed to residents while supplies last.

The kits include: a low-flow showerhead, faucet aerators, kitchen swivel, fill-cycle diverter, leak detection tablets, a toilet tank bank, and a flow meter bag with installation instructions.

To schedule a free home water visit, you can call the Utilities Department’s Water Conservation Specialist at (805) 925-0951 extension 7235.
