Water Conservation Landscape Evaluations

Up to seventy-five percent of the water used at a large residential lot is used on the landscape.  An effective way to reduce water consumption is to have a water evaluation performed on your landscape.  The City offers professional evaluations for residents using more than 80 units of water a billing cycle.  To sign up or for more details, please contact the City’s Water Conservation Administrator, Debby Figoni at 310-285-2492 or DFigoni@beverlyhills.org
