Make Water Efficiency a Way of Life
<< Previous 7 of 8 Next >>

Muni Water’s customers demonstrated their continued commitment to conservation by reducing water use in 2017 by 22% compared to four years ago during the drought! Even though the call for water use reductions in San José has ended, it’s important to eliminate water waste and make efficient water use a part of our daily lives.

To prevent water waste, the City has water use rules that remain in effect at all times, regardless of drought conditions. There are also programs in place to help make efficient water use a daily practice.

Here are some tips on how to use water efficiently:
  • Only water outdoors before 10:00 a.m. and after 8:00 p.m. 
  • If using a hose to wash your vehicle, be sure to use an automatic shut-off nozzle.
  • Fix leaks as soon as possible.
  • Use your Home Water Reports to track your water use trends and get customized tips on actions you can take.
  • Visit Muni Water's office for free conservation items, such as faucet aerators and shower timers.

To view the complete list of water use rules in effect at all times, please visit or call 408-794-6784.
