The District does not have electrical power for our pumps between 1:00 P.M. and 5:00 P.M. during the summer and must rely upon the water in the storage reservoirs. Do not irrigate during these hours unless absolutely necessary. Also during these hours much of this water evaporates and does not help your plants.

Free Water Surveys – Now Available to Residential Customers

The Casitas Municipal Water District (CMWD) is offering, on-site surveys for indoor and landscape water use of single-family and multi-family residential water customers in the Ojai Valley. The indoor survey includes a test of showerhead and faucet flow rates, an estimate of toilet flush volumes, a review of all water-using appliances and a test for leaks. The landscape survey includes a review of the irrigation system, irrigation design and watering schedules. The survey also includes reading the meter to reveal possible system leaks in the customers system. Casitas‚ Water survey program is a free service offered to customers to help them save water inside and outside, and lower their water bill.

Our customers will work one-on-one with a trained CMWD surveyor to analyze how water is being used both indoors and outdoors, Customers will learn how to tell when they are over-watering their landscape and how they might alter their landscape to save additional water and possibly improve upon the aesthetics. Customers will be provided recommendations for improving water-use efficiency; and information on toilet, clothes washer and landscape rebates. Casitas will provide free conservation devices including low flow showerheads and faucet aerators.

Residents are encouraged to sign-up for a home water survey and to schedule an appointment by contacting Mr. Ron Merkling, Water Conservation Coordinator with Casitas at (805) 649-2251 Extension 118.


As the weather changes from spring to summer or summer to fall make sure your irrigation controller is set correctly. Please start watering about 10:00 P.M. and finish by 5:00 A. M. if possible. The District pays half price for electricty between Midnight and 6:00 A.M. so the more you shift your water usage to night time the more money we all save and there is less evaporation so your plants get more of the water.
