With the current drought our city and state faces and the governor's call for mandated water conservation; please find the right combination for you to reduce your water usage. As a City our water target reduction is 13% from our 2013 usage. To meet this goal the City of Ceres is committed to make every effort to provide its residents with the most current water saving technology and equipment to better utilize the produced water supply. The City currently offers home water audits, setting of irrigation systems and rebate programs for toilets, washing machines, dishwashers, smart irrigation controllers and turf replacement. Water is a valuable resource in California. Using our resources wisely will help us fill the needs of people, industries, businesses and farms, while also keeping fish and other aquatic life alive and well. Across the state, these water users have diverse needs and goals; we must find a way to share limited and fluctuating supplies.
