County To Distribute Water Conservation Door Hangers

Posted: Updated:

With mandatory water conservation growing more likely due to drought and regulatory restrictions, the San Diego County Water Authority is planning to distribute 1.75 million door hangers as a community service to help residents alert their neighbors to potential water-wasting problems in their yards.

The bright yellow door hangers contain a checklist of potential irrigation problems on one side, and recommended outdoor water conservation tips that can save thousands of gallons of water on the other.

"These door hangers are a positive means for neighbors to help neighbors save water," said Maureen Stapleton, general manager of the San Diego County Water Authority. "It gives residents a convenient way to alert their neighbors to a potential outdoor water wasting problem, such as a leaking sprinkler or an irrigation system left on during a rainstorm."

Approximately 280,000 pads of door hangers will be distributed to homes in the Sunday, March 1, edition of The San Diego Union-Tribune.
