Voluntary Water Conservation in Lakeport
Voluntary Water Conservation
On May 11, 2021, the Lake County Board of Supervisors approved a drought emergency proclamation due the worsening drought conditions in our region.
The City of Lakeport relies on ground water wells in the Scotts Valley area along with treated water from Clear Lake for our City’s potable water needs. Both sources are vulnerable due to the current and forecasted drought conditions.
WHAT CAN PEOPLE DO TO HELP?
We are taking this opportunity to remind our customers that it is always prudent to conserve our resources, whether it is water or any other resource. Everyone can do their part in conserving this important resource by voluntarily reducing their water consumption. We are asking every customer to voluntarily save 15-20 gallons of water per day.
Here are some simple water-saving ideas you can use at home:
- Install water-saving showerheads and take shorter showers – five minutes or less
- Turn water off when brushing teeth
- Let lawns go dormant in the summer
- Water plants deeply and less often
- Flush the toilet less
- Check toilets, faucets and pipes for leaks and promptly repair if necessary
We appreciate your assistance in helping to protect our water resources and doing your part!
