Bits and Pieces

Update Your Water Account Information
The town's water department is implementing a new customer information system and customer portal in the near future. They are  asking our customers to please call 520-229-5000 or e-mail, to verify that they have your correct phone number, billing address and e-mail address on file. They want to make sure we have your correct contact information as we prepare for the upcoming software changes. 

According to the department's fall newsletter, "the new system will allow customers convenient ways to access account and billing information, more options to make payments and other self service features."
Five ways to save even more water
Did you know that irrigation watering can easily be half of  a home's total water use? There's a huge opportunity for homes to reduce this use by:
  • Checking for system leaks
  • Reducing the amount of watering so that the plants get only the water they need
  • Reducing the watering schedule in those seasons where the plants are really just dormant
  • Choosing native and low water use plans
  • Harvesting rainwater

Celebrate Hispanic-American Heritage Tomorrow
The Oro Valley Historical Society is hosting an exhibit that celebrates Hispanic-American Heritage tomorrow at Steam Pump Ranch.  The event will be held in concert with the town's "Second Saturday" events. It starts at 8:30am. The exhibit is at the Pusch House Museum.
