Water Conservation Programs for your Home
The City’s water system serves 92,000 people who live in our water service area. Together, single family and multiple family residential customers account for about 65 percent of system water use, or about 2.3 billion gallons per year.
The average single family home in Santa Cruz uses 226 gallons of water per day, and about 3/4 of that water goes to indoor water uses. Outdoor use varies widely according to the season, lot size, and landscaping characteristics.
The city offers several programs to help you reduce water use at your home.
