Santa Margarita Water District recognizes “Water Heroes” who live a SustainaBlue lifestyle that shows water efficiency inside and outside the home. The Water Heroes are honored by SMWD Board of Directors and receive a glass plate and yard sign proclaiming “A Water Hero Lives Here.”

The first three Santa Margarita Water District SustainaBlue Water Heroes were honored by District leaders on June 3, each resident demonstrating that everyone from individual homeowners to large homeowners associations can play an important role in helping SMWD reduce its water use during the historic state drought.
Even with a comprehensive, $30 million plan to dramatically increase the use of recycled water and other initiatives, SMWD customers must reduce their water use to meet SMWD’s 24 percent reduction mandated by the state. The mandate took effect June 1.
SMWD knows that customers are responding to calls to use water more efficiently. Some, however, are leading by example, making them true SustainaBlue Water Heroes. SustainaBlue is SMWD’s initiative for outdoor water-use efficiency, including low water use plants, drip irrigation, keeping water on-site.
New heroes will be honored monthly; customers can send nominations by filling out the following form.
