New Watering Rules Take Effect in Sacramento

Sacramento has one of the highest per capita water consumption rates in the nation. Residents each consume about 280 gallons of water per day for all residential uses, compared with the state average of 192. About 65% of that usage goes for landscape irrigation, primarily lawns. See more from Matt Weiser's story for the Sacramento Bee >>

Using the HydroPoint savings calculator, we determined that Sacramento
could save 10,764,468 gallons of water each year by watering the State Capitol grounds efficiently. And if one in 4 households used HydroPoint's WeatherTRAK solution, Sacramento would see savings of 796,496,519 gallons of water per year!
