If you live in Carlsbad and are looking for a way to be more water conscious, you are in luck. As a resident you are eligible to participate in the city’s home water audit program, which just got a little easier.
The city has just completed two videos that can be seen either on the Carlsbad Municipal Water District website (http://www.carlsbadca.gov/water) and also on the city’s Time Warner Cable channel 24/126.
The program originally involved a city representative visiting a home to evaluate water usage and make suggestions, but due to the drought and the economy the increase in popularity of the program has made it too difficult to schedule so many appointments. The videos offer a great alternative and can be viewed any time on the website in the comfort of your home or office.
Residents who prefer a live visit are still able to obtain one by making an appointment, although you may have to wait 2 to over 4 weeks for your visit due to increased demand. Call 760-438-2722 to schedule an appointment.
Water conservation is more important now than ever before, as the drought has increased the price we pay to import our water from the Colorado River. These videos are a great way to get informed and bring your water bills down, so what are you waiting for? Just another perk offered by our fantastic city!
