Water Conservation in Redwood City
logo

Water is California's most precious commodity.

With all of our drinking water supplied by one source – the Hetch Hetchy water system – and with demand for water consistently exceeding our supply, Redwood City is implementing an aggressive water conservation program.

This program, in combination with a state-of-the-art recycled water program for irrigation and industrial uses, will help reduce our drinking water use and avoid strict water conservation and rationing measures when the next drought happens.

Conserving water will take the involvement of our entire community – residents and businesses, schools and hospitals, public buildings and dripparks – to ensure a healthy, viable, and stable water supply for today, and for the future.

You can reach our Water Conservation Program staff at (650) 780-7436. Their office is located at 1400 Broadway, Redwood City, CA 94063.

The City of Redwood City is a long-time member of the California Urban Water Conservation Council (CUWCC), an association of water agencies and public advocacy/special interest groups, concerned with California’s water supply and conservation of natural resources.

The CUWCC developed "Best Management Practices" (BMPs) for optimum water conservation, and for monitoring conservation program implementation by participating agencies. Since 1992, Redwood City has been progressively implementing all the water conservation BMPs, with the support of the City Council for an aggressive conservation program to accelerate full compliance.
