The City offers several resources to help residents better manage outdoor water use:
Bend water customers have access to their water use through WaterSmart and can track daily water use, get alerts and notifications about water use, and learn how they compare to similar households.
The City’s WaterWise Program offers three, full-color WaterWise Guides that cover landscape, irrigation, and curbside landscaping in Bend. The guides are free to the public and available online or at the City Hall Information Desk.
· WaterWise Workshops at Hollinshead Park
Join the WaterWise Program, in partnership with the Central Oregon Master Gardener Association, to learn about drip irrigation, low-water landscape transformations and more.
For questions about your irrigation system, contact the City of Bend Utility Department at 541-317-3000 (option #2) or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Residents should also remember to follow the City’s approved irrigation hours and days:
· No landscape irrigation from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
