The City of Santa Clarita is doing its part to conserve water during California’s drought by reducing water use by 20 percent or more throughout the community.
Residents are now being asked to help the City with its conservation efforts by reporting broken sprinklers and overwatering in public spaces through the City’s 24-7 eService app.
The City’s eService application is a great way to report water issues and other areas of concern in the City’s public areas and medians.
Smartphone users can download the City of Santa Clarita eService application on an iPhone or Android to quickly and conveniently snap a photo of the public space, upload to the system and report concerns for review.
In addition to sprinkler issues, the mobile application allows residents to report graffiti, abandoned vehicles, transit issues, street repairs, traffic lights and a host of other issues the City handles.
Residents play an important role in helping City staff identify public areas where sprinklers may need attention or where over-watering may be taking place.
If residents see water in the roadway or believe a median sprinkler is broken, they are encouraged to report the issue using the eService app so the City can quickly address it.
“The City is vigilant about conservation and is doing its best to monitor and reduce our water use wherever possible,” said Mayor Laurene Weste. “Residents also play an important role in the City’s conservation efforts by reporting concerns when they see them. The sooner we know about potential issues, the faster we can investigate and make necessary repairs.”
An after-hours Landscape Maintenance District hotline at (661) 286-4050 is also available for non-emergency calls about sprinkler issues in medians and public spaces. When calling the after-hours hotline residents will be asked what the issue is, where they saw it, and to provide a phone number for follow up.
