Water Management Program
Folsom’s Water Conservation Division is committed to helping our residents and businesses use water efficiently! The services and programs below are available to help you use water wisely.
Sign up for your free Water-Wise House Call today! City of Folsom water customers can receive a free evaluation of indoor and outdoor water use, including an irrigation check-up.
City staff will evaluate your water usage and make recommendations on how you can use water more efficiently.
What does a free Water-Wise House Call / Residential Water Survey include?
- A site inspection and evaluation of the landscape, irrigation equipment, irrigation system design, and assistance in programming controllers for effective watering schedules.
- Brochures on water-wise landscaping.
- Discussion on interior fixture conservation measures.
How do I schedule my free house call?
Water surveys are scheduled on weekdays by appointment. A survey generally takes about one hour for a typical residence.
To make an appointment, call the Water Conservation Division at 916-461-6177 or send us an email.
What does it cost?
Nothing. It is a free service provided by the City to its water customers.
Do I have to be home?
Yes; this is not just an evaluation of your system but also an opportunity for you to learn more about irrigation and effective landscape watering. We will need access to gated yards and your irrigation controller.
Why should I schedule a water survey?
Typically, 60-70 percent of residential water use occurs outdoors. A water-use survey will give you important information on improving the effectiveness of your landscape irrigation and reducing water waste.
