Water use efficiency and conservation form an integral part of the City of Napa's long-term water management strategy. To comply with the Water Conservation Act of 2009 (SBx7-7), the City worked to keep system demand below 132 gallons per capita per day (gpcd) up to 2020 and is now looking ahead to Making Water Conservation a California Way of Life. For our customers this means we are available to help you make every drop count, and every drop you save will reduce your own water bill.
From 1997 to 2002, demand on our water system averaged 170 gpcd. Since 2003 when the City began to implement more California Best Management Practices, demand has averaged 147 gpcd, including a low of 114 gpcd in 2016. This trend results from the evolution of water-efficient appliances, City ordinances and programs, and water recycling. We look to continue this progress by offering our customers a variety of conservation tips, financial incentives, and educational opportunities.
Reminder for Outside City customers: Whether located inside or outside the City limits, if your site is served by the City of Napa water system (i.e. you receive a City of Napa water bill) then you are eligible for all of our water-saving incentives.
