The Alliance for Water Efficiency has recognized the City with platinum status for their G480-20 standard, a nationwide standard for critical elements of an effective water conservation program. Santa Barbara’s long-term commitment to water conservation is evident in reductions in water demand achieved over the past 30 years: community water use has decreased to the same level it was in the 1950s, despite the population more than doubling since that time. We have our community to thank for making water conservation a Santa Barbara way of life.
