Posted on September 21, 2020 at 9:24 pm by Clay Curtin

Water is a precious resource, one that has to be managed today to ensure our natural supply remains available for future generations. Water conservation is a top priority and provides multiple benefits: 
  • Reducing water bills
  • Lowering yard maintenance
  • Preventing urban runoff that would cause pollution
  • Protecting upstream creeks and wildlife habitats
  • Decreasing energy use
  • Helping preserve our environment
Practicing a low water-use lifestyle is a way everyone can help ensure a long-term, sufficient water supply. The City of Menlo Park offers water conservation rebates and incentives to residents and commercial businesses that are Menlo Park Municipal Water customers. Please keep in mind that although you may live in Menlo Park, you may not be a Menlo Park Municipal Water customer. Find your provider by using our interactive water service provider map
