AVERAGE WATER USAGE

DO YOU HAVE A GHOST FLUSHER?

Can you hear water running into your toilet tank even though no one flushes? That's a sign that the rubber valve between the tank and the bowl is leaking. When the tank's water level drops far enough, the toilet mechanism lets in more water and makes that noise. Fix or replace the rubber valve to save water.

WATER CONSERVATION CHECKLIST

Your Score: if you've checked 19-23 items, you're doing an excellent job of saving water, energy, and protecting our environment! 12-18 means you're doing a good job, but there's room for improvement. Less than 12 means that you need to change your habits.

FALL/WINTER

Reduce the amount your automatic sprinklers water in the fall and turn them off in the winter. 

Replace your old toilet with a 1.6 gallon low-flow style. You can save up to 5.5 gallons of water per flush. Even if you double-flush, you will still save over 3.5 gallons. You can also receive a rebate for each toilet you replace. Contact the District at 733-2475 for details.

SPRING/SUMMER

Yard watering can account for up to 75% of your domestic water use. The list below outlines some ways to reduce your outside water usage:

WATER QUALITY

Each year, the water supplied to you by Vandenberg Village Community Services District meets or exceeds the State and Federal standards for water quality.  The quality of our wastewater can impact the quality of our water. Help prevent pollution to our drinking water source by properly disposing of the chemicals you use in your home. Every household chemical has the potential to pollute the environment and contaminate our water supply. One quart of motor oil can contaminate 250,000 gallons of water. Remember, your drain leads to your wastewater disposal system and eventually to our drinking water source. Protect our water by respecting your wastewater system.
