City of Sacramento

The City of Sacramento is deploying the state’s most aggressive water patrols to compensate for half of its homes being unmetered. Sacramento has deputized nearly 40 employees, who drive regularly for their jobs, to actively enforce outdoor water restrictions with a robust program including warnings and eventually fines. Residents can also report water waste anytime via the 311 app on a mobile phone. For more information, visit the City of Sacramento water conservation webpage.
