The Water Resources and Conservation Program is here to aid your efforts to conserve. Millbrae is on a voluntary "Use Water Wisely" conservation program; however, everyone is encouraged to conserve water use by at least 10%. We hope the following programs and information will save you water, which will in turn lower your water bill. Please call the Water Resources and Conservation Program at (650) 259-2348 for more information or if you have any questions.
Free Water Saving Devices
- Fix all leaky toilets, faucets and pipes. Pick-up a free copy of the "Practical Plumbing" Handbook. Also request free aerators for your bathroom and kitchen faucets.
- Check for silent toilet leaks by requesting free leak detection dye tablets. Toilet leaks not seen or heard can waste up to 300 gallons of water per day.
- Bring in your old showerheads and exchange them for free water conserving multi-massage function showerheads.
- Request a free shower timer to encourage family members who take long showers to take shorter ones.
- Refer to the lawn watering guide information in the Water Conservation Newsletter for tips for determining how much and how often you should water to have a lush, green lawn without over watering. Studies show that on average, 50%-70% of home water is used outdoors for watering lawns and gardens.
