This periodic flushing helps eliminate the possibility of stagnant water conditions.

You can help protect all of our groundwater supplies by disposing of harmful household products and other toxic chemicals in the proper manner. Household hazardous waste includes cleaners, glues, soaps, pesticides, paints, fertilizers, medicines, chrome solutions, motor oil, and batteries. These waste materials should never be dumped down the drain, in the trash, or on the ground. Instead they should be taken to a hazardous waste collection or recycling center. Whenever possible, cutting down on the use of toxic household products by switching to safer alternatives is encouraged.
Household hazardous waste should be taken to the San Bernardino County Fire Household Hazardous Waste Collection Facility at 2824 East “W” Street (located at the former Norton Air Force Base). It is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information on household hazardous waste, call 1-800-645-9228.

Water-saving devices such as low-flow toilets and showerheads use less water with no loss in convenience or benefit. For example, a family of four can save over 35,000 gallons of water per year by installing low-water-use showerheads. Since they will be using less water, an additional $50 or more can be saved in energy costs. For more information on water-saving ideas click here for Conservation tips or call (909) 806-4287.
