Got water conservation questions? These new virtual ‘office hours’ can help

City of Sacramento Utilities staff are inviting people to attend virtual “office hours” on May 26, where they can ask water efficiency experts about topics including drought-tolerant landscaping and water conservation rebates.

The office hours are part of an effort by the City to encourage its customers to use water more efficiently while dry conditions affect the state and region.

“Although the pandemic has made it more difficult to interact with our customers, it’s important during this dry year that we make our water conservation programs just as accessible,” said William Granger, City water conservation coordinator. “We often receive similar questions, and this is a great opportunity to interact and have them answered live.”

Staff during the office hours will focus on the City’s turf-conversion program, which offers up to $3,000 to residents — and businesses up to $50,000 — to convert lawns to drought-tolerant landscapes.

People can register to attend the office hours online, which will last from noon to 1 p.m.

Staff are considering offering more hours through the summer depending on interest from residents.
