Water: What You Pay For

Delivering water from the Rocky Mountains or the Northern Sierra to your home requires a lot of infrastructure, people and energy, and this is what your water bill pays for.

Water Use Restrictions

In June 2015, the State of California mandated a 25 percent reduction in statewide water use. Helix’s mandate started at 20 percent and was then reduced to 12 percent. Now, in June 2016, the state is allowing regional drought management and Helix no longer has a mandated reduction target thanks to decades of regional drought planning and the incredible conservation efforts of our customers.

Thank You for Conserving
