Water Usage Data


Santa Barbara has a long history of using our water resources wisely. Even as population has continued to grow, water usage in the City has decreased. We want to thank our water customers for doing a tremendous job conserving water and serving as a model water wise community. Although we have a diverse water supply, Santa Barbara is a semi-arid climate with little rainfall; there is never enough water to waste.
