As a service to Tigard Water Service Area customers, the city now offers free Water Audits to help citizens find ways to use less water.
One of the most important things that a homeowner can do to save water is make sure that equipment is functioning appropriately and is efficient. Water audits are performed during the spring and summer seasons when watering yards begins. Watering your yard is the main way that water is lost either through over-watering or inefficient systems. The Water Conservation Specialist can also help you to understand water efficient appliances, conservation tools and leak detection, many times over the phone.
What is a Water Audit?
Saving money and saving water is what a water audit is all about. During a visit to your home or business, Water Conservation Specialist Kevin McCaleb will assess equipment both inside and outside your home. He will offer suggestions to help improve the way you manage your water so you can save money and resources.
Though the Water Conservation Specialist won't look specifically for leaks, he can generally detect if a leak exists and often its most likely location. When finished, he will provide you with a copy of the recommendations to help you begin to make changes. An audit will identify not only the problems, but solutions as well. This service is offered to Tigard Water Service Area customers for free.

Water Audits Not Performed During Rainy Months
Water audits are not performed during the rainy months because the majority of water loss and inefficiency can be found from yard watering habits and tools.
