Solano County - Water Audit (5-10 min.)
HOW IT WORKS
Below are several Yes/No questions related to home water usage. Each question is actually a recommendation for how you can improve your water use and potentially lower costs.

Keep track of the questions for which you reply with a "No" and consider whether or not the suggestion could work for you. Skip the questions that do not apply. Happy Water Savings!
