H2OME's smart water savings resources and tools help San Diego and Orange County residents save money, conserve water, and improve our communities.

Instead of waiting for large-scale solutions by municipalities to augment our minimal local water resources (only 20% of our water comes from local sources) we each can do things in our own backyards that will contribute on a large scale to water security.  Conservation has been an under-appreciated piece of our water strategy so far, but remains the least expensive. 

By reducing our landscape irrigation by 50% we can effectively double the availability of local water.  This 20% savings in water is more than 2.5 times what the Carlsbad desalination plant can provide for our community, and at minimal infrastructure cost!
