How is Fountain Valley doing its part?

Fountain Valley is doing many things to reduce water use on public property, such as using recycled water to irrigate landscapes, reducing irrigation run times, and replacing turf and other ornamentals with drought tolerant landscapes. The City has also stopped watering turf medians on public streets as mandated by the Governor's Executive Order and is exploring drought tolerant alternatives. Fountain Valley will also continue its outreach to the public regarding water conservation and available incentives for customers to install water efficient devices.
