Water is something we should not take for granted. No longer is water plentiful, nor are we guaranteed an endless supply. With the state of California under mandatory water use restrictions, Santa Ana is working diligently to do its part to conserve. For example, the city supplies reclaimed water for commercial and industrial irrigation and sponsors education and incentive programs for businesses and residents.
"Water sustains life, enriches health and
enables commerce. We treat it as a service to the community, not just an unlimited commodity."
Our vision is for a resilient and sustainable water infrastructure that will deliver necessary services today and in future decades. To that end, we are making rate adjustments and embarking on a robust capital improvement program that calls for pipe replacements and increased use of technology to monitor and regulate water use while providing actionable data to consumers. We will also be making improvements to wells, pump stations, reservoirs and waste water facilities.
While these efforts are significant, Public Works can’t do it alone. We ask you to use water wisely but please don’t stop there. Let us know what we can do better, because our goal is to have the most efficient public works that provide critical services to Santa Ana residents at a reasonable cost.
