We all have a responsibility to protect our resources and use them wisely. Conserving water helps save money, and the more efficiently you use it, the more you get out of each gallon that you purchase. This means you pay less without sacrificing any of the benefits.

California is currently experiencing one of the most severe droughts on record. Now, more than ever, it is important to prevent water waste. SBMWD is working hard to provide you, our customer, the tools and resources to help you become water efficient.

Join us in creating a sustainable San Bernardino!
