HELP MANAGE THIS YEAR’S DROUGHT BY CONSERVING WATER
                                

                   
                                                                                                                                               
                                   

This year is the driest since the infamous drought year of 1977.  To help stretch supplies of reliable, high-quality drinking water, the East Bay Municipal Management District (EBMUD) is asking us to voluntarily cut back water usage by 10%.  While many have already made changes in how water is used at home and in the garden – here’s a few tips to help conserve even more…
 
Request a free EBMUD Water Smart Home Survey Kit! 
 
The kit includes home survey worksheets, toilet tank dye tabs, a flow-meter bag and step by step instructions on ways to manage home water use. To order a FREE kit, click here.

If you complete the home survey and return the survey to EBMUD, you can be eligible to receive FREE water saving devices, such as low flow showerheads, faucet aerators, and low flow garden hose nozzles.
 
Toilet Leaks
 
Toilet tank leaks are a very common problem – with one in four homes having a toilet leak!  A running toilet can waste two gallons of water per minute and a silent leak can waste up to 7,000 of water per month.  To find and fix a toilet leak, view the EBMUD video.

Faucet Drips
 
A faucet with a slow steady drip wastes 350 gallons of water per month.  If the leak is a small continuous stream, 2,000 - 2,700 gallons per month can be wasted.  To look for hidden leaks, begin by turning off all running water in your home/business Check the reading on your water meter. Then, don’t use any water for 30 minutes and read the meter again.  If the meter shows any water use, you have a leak that needs repair. To fix these leaks, just replace the worn wasters in the faucets.
 
Other easy tips…
 
* Turn off the tap while brushing your teeth.  Use a cup to rinse your mouth.  Run the tap only to rinse the toothbrush.

* Place a gallon jug under the faucet while you wait for water to heat up.  Use the captured water to water plants.  Also, insulating hot water pipes minimizes water and energy use because it reduces the amount of time needed for hot water to arrive at your tap.

* Keep a container of drinking water in the refrigerator rather than running tap water for a cool drink.

Sign Up Today for CodeRED - Emeryville’s FREE Automated Notification System for Emergencies and More!


The CodeRED system is a free web-based automated notification service that sends personalized voice, email, text, and social media messages. CodeRED will be used for emergencies, such as evacuation notices, missing child alerts, and post-earthquake or other disaster instructions but, you can also sign up to receive automatic notices for public meeting, community events, and other non-emergency community outreach initiatives.

CodeRED works primarily through free subscription so please sign-up today and notify your friends/family/neighbors about this service.

Subscribers determine delivery modes (landline, cell phone, voice, text, email, social media) they want to receive for emergency notices as well as whether the subscriber wishes to receive non-emergency notices. CodeRED will automatically send emergency messages to 911 landline phones without prior subscription (but you must subscribe to receive any notifications by cell phone, email, or text).
