Choose the right plant for the right spot.
A beautiful, water-saving approach to landscaping in our challenging climate .
Each household can have up to two rain barrels = 110 total gallons of storage capacity. This is enough to help water your vegetable garden, outdoor plants, or a small lawn.
Left uncontrolled, noxious weeds will form dense mono-cultures and displace native and desirable plants. Native plant loss affects wildlife that depends on the native vegetation for survival.
If your faucet or toilet is leaking, please shut off the water at your meter and make the necessary repairs. There is a shut off valve on each side of the meter. Use a pipe wrench to turn the valve 90 degrees. Once the repair is made, use the pipe wrench to turn the valve back and turn the water on.
If you suspect a leaking main water line or customer service line and you are seeing a lot of surface water, this is a water emergency. Please call the District immediately.
A Base Rate of $40.00 is charged to every account monthly.

Cold weather can damage your pipes and cause water loss. Consider taking these steps:
- Insulate pipes located in cold, drafty places or exposed to outside walls.
- Using heat tape can prevent freezing. Inspect existing heat tape to make sure it is in good condition.
- Open the doors of your sink base cabinet so that warm air can reach water pipes.
- Please don’t leave water dripping – it wastes water, raises your water bill, and can damage your septic system.
- Disconnect all outside hoses.

3/21/2019 Customer Comment at Board Meeting:
When repairing or replacing existing service line, please make sure that your electrical system is grounded properly. Many times this is done through the main water line. If the metal pipes are replaced with plastic, the grounding is no longer effective. Consult an electrician to ensure proper grounding.
March 2019 Customer Email Question:
Does having the new meter at our house mean you’d know if a leak was on our line?
The new Badger Beacon meter will detect if there is a leak after the meter. It cannot measure water in the line before the meter. If there is any water showing up inside or outside anywhere, it is better to be on the safe side and have us take a look.
January 2019 Customer Email:
I didn't think I could afford updated appliances nor did I think that doing so would save me so much. I put it off for 8 years. I traded out my old Washer for a new water saving one that retails for 600. However, I bought a nearly new Washer and Dryer on Craigslist for 150. for both! Also 2 nearly new low flow toilets for less than 100. a piece. I also rented a Home Depot pickup to get them for 19.95, very affordable transport, and picked them all up in one day.
It's possible! I used to pay 76. a month, now 36.
