Save Money on Saving Water


The East Bay Municipal Utilities District (EBMUD) recently announced a pilot program to help property owners of multi-family residential and commercial buildings retrofit their structures. 

The EBMUD WaterSmart Retrofit Program assists property owners in retrofitting all sanitary fixtures, devices and landscape irrigation at no cost upfront. The utility will then take the payment via the property owners’ monthly water bill. 

The payback period must be less than five years. If the property owners are able to upgrade their properties, they can save significant amount of water, thus cutting utility cost.

Questions about the program can be directed to Joseph Lerma in EBMUD’s Water Conservation Office at 986-7611.
