Valencia Water Company customers who want the latest valuable tips on how to conserve water inside and outside their homes can attend a free class and receive a $30 credit on their water bill.

The next classes are 10 a.m. on Saturday and 6:30 p.m. on June 20 in the Community Room of the Valencia Town Center, 24201 W. Valencia Blvd. Each workshop is limited to 60 people on a first-come, first-serve basis. No registration is required, but Valencia Water Company customers are required to bring their water bill for verification.

"Saving water is easy if you know the right tips and have the right tools," said Matt Dickens, Valencia Water's resource conservation manager. "Most people believe they are doing all they can to save water. However, classes like these provide a wealth of new information that shows what else you can do without sacrificing your lifestyle. It's a great opportunity to ask the experts."

Future Saturday classes, which begin at 10 a.m., are July 14 and 21, August 18, September 15 and 29, and October 13. Additional Wednesday classes, which begin at 6:30 p.m., are on July 18, August 8 and 22, September 19, and October 17.

Among the topics to be discussed are how to inspect your sprinklers for problems, landscaping with drought tolerant plants, setting your outdoor watering timers and knowing when to water your landscape, how to convert to a drip irrigation system, how to install high efficiency sprinklers, what types of low-water-using fixtures and appliances are suitable for inside your house and the available rebates for water saving devices.

In addition to the $30 credit, Valencia Water Company customers who attend will also be eligible for door prizes, such as water conservation kits. Additional classes will be scheduled. More details, including map and directions to the Community Room, are available on the Valencia Water Company website or by calling 661-294-0828.
