Water surveys are a simple way to determine if you can save money while also saving our water supply. The DWP Conservation Department offers free water surveys.
Outdoor Irrigation Survey Information
We set an appointment that is convenient for you.
Surveys can take 10 minutes to 3 hours, depending on the size of your landscape.
We can meet the homeowner, the tenant, or the landscaper as long as we have the homeowner’s permission.
We inspect your sprinkler system timer and sprinklers.
We measure your yard and landscape features, plotting it out on paper.
We perform what is known as a "can test" to determine your water usage and irrigation coverage.
With this information, we evaluate your landscape water needs and irrigation system performance.
After a week, and some number crunching, we provide recommendations that can help you use water more wisely. To most people’s surprise, we are often able to cut outdoor watering by as much as 50%, while retaining or improving the look of your landscaping. That can add up to huge savings on your water bill and just as important, huge water savings.
