Water Conservation

Water is a precious and limited resource, especially in drought-prone California. Water conservation and the efficient use of water is the most environmentally sound way to protect our water. Using less water protects our water supply for future generations. We offer free water-saving devices and rebates to help customers save water indoors and outdoors.

Water Conservation Update

The San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC) formally rescinded the Water Shortage Emergency Declaration at their April 11, 2023 Commission Meeting to align with Governor Gavin Newsom and the State Water Quality Control Board. 

The City of Daly City will continue to educate our residents and requests everyone to continue to use water wisely.
