The health of California’s growing population and the welfare of our farms, businesses, and communities depend on a reliable, high quality water supply.
California is experiencing changing water conditions and has an increased need to protect and conserve our water supply to address drought conditions and ensure future availability. All of Turlock's water supply comes from deep groundwater wells. In periods of drought, extra measures are implemented to ensure that an adequate supply of water is available even as water table levels may drop.
Now, more than ever, it is important to conserve water. The City of Turlock has implemented various tools and resources to assist with water conservation. We have a City wide watering schedule
, free services such as sprinkler timer set-up
and residential water surveys
, tools to report water waste
, high efficiency appliance rebates
, and offer low flow devices to qualifying customers. We have also developed a Water Pledge tool for consumers to actively participate and commit to making reductions in and around the home.
The City of Turlock wishes to remind its residents how vital water conservation is to our community. It is never appropriate to waste a natural resource like water. By encouraging appreciation of the value of our water, and educating consumers on efficient water use and conservation practices, we help to ensure a sustainable water supply both now and in the future. If we all work together, we can make a difference.
