The NCSD is dedicated to ongoing water conservation in our beautiful, Sierra Community.
In an effort to support your individual conservation efforts, the NCSD provides tools, rebate programs and water saving devices to homeowners.
The district encourages you to take advantage of these multiple resources available not only during this time of drought, but beyond.

Would you like the ability to monitor your water usage, set leak notifications, and measure your conservation efforts? Register for an acount free of charge at www.northstarcsd.watersmart.com using your account number and service zip code. Registering with WaterSmart will grant customers the ability to:
* Access hourly, weekly, monthly and annual consumption data. Usage data is recorded hourly and updated every twenty-four hours, providing the most informative look into your consumption.
* Opt-in to leak notifications via text or voice. This allows you to be automatically alerted to potential significant water waste and/or potential property damage at the earliest available indication of a leak.
* Explore personalized, step-by-step actions that will help you conserve water and lower your consumption.
* Compare your water use to similar homes, i.e. homes with the same number of occupants and a similar yard size.
The California Department of Water Resources has two rebate programs to help Californians replace inefficient toilets and tear out water-guzzling lawns. The “turf and toilet” rebate program is financed by the Proposition 1 water bond approved by voters in 2014. Californians can visit Save Our Water Rebates for more information and to apply.
