Water Use in Parks

By June 2023, Parks will analyze park irrigation accounts to measure baseline water usage and costs, identify long-term sustainable options for reducing both water usage and costs, and prioritize parks in which to implement changes.

Key Steps

1 2 3 4
Identify, compile, measure, and analyze park irrigation accounts, historical water usage, and each water district's pricing tier structure, tier thresholds, and surge/surplus charges. Identify multiple options to reduce water use that are sustainable for the long-term. Conduct cost/benefit analysis and identify and prioritize parks with higher water usage, higher water costs, and/or where changes can result in the greatest savings in water usage and/or cost.
