The primary objective of the Public Services Department, Conservation Section is to implement the City Council’s goal of environmental stewardship through promotion of energy and water efficiency programs such as energy/water audits, school education, public outreach, and financial rebates/incentives. The long-term goal is to increase water/energy efficiency and reduce per capita water/energy usage.
There are many ways to increase your water and energy efficiency, and decrease your utility bills. Many require little or no investment of time or money - it's as simple as fixing a leaky faucet or adjusting your thermostat.
Others require an initial investment, but result in significant savings. Whether you are interested in making small changes or large ones, the City of San Marcos Public Services Department is here to help. We offer a variety of programs to help you achieve your water and energy conservation goals.
We hope you will take advantage of the many conservation programs we have to offer, and we thank you for doing your part to conserve out precious water and energy resources!
