Water Efficiency Program
Why water efficiency?
Although Yreka has an excellent source of water, we have only a limited storage capacity for increased demands in the summer, and need to plan for emergencies such as power outages and fires. Yreka must also comply with strict State requirements to ensure the safety, security and efficient use of drinking water as an essential and limited resource.
Save water and save money!
Significant amounts of water can be wasted by leaks, inefficient water fixtures and appliances, and inappropriate landscaping and irrigation. For tips to reduce water use, please see the Water Efficiency Program flyer located at right.
Most Yreka water customers use twice as much water during the summer, due to landscape irrigation. In order to help water customers and residents reduce landscape irrigation water use, the City has developed two informative publications, located in the box on the right side of your screen. Reducing Water Bills Through Water Efficient Landscaping presents landscaping and irrigation ideas for saving water. The Yreka Water Efficient Plant Guide is an extensive list of trees, shrubs, groundcovers, vines, annuals and perennials which are rated for their water use, and are suitable for Yreka gardens and landscaping. Please feel free to check them out!
