Efficient water use is essential for the San Diego region. Our Mediterranean climate means truly wet years are few and multiple dry years are common. Living a WaterSmart lifestyle – smartly using our available water resources – gives our region better protection against drought, reduces our reliance on imported water supplies, and helps keep your water costs as low as possible.
