Santa Maria is asking residents to reach out regarding water conservation concerns.

The city’s utilities department has set up a water conservation hotline.

The hotline will allow residents and businesses to voice concerns, report water misuse or leaks, and request information on water conservation.

“We've been in a drought for many years now. There's been an aberration for maybe one or two years that were wet. The bottom line is to be sure to save water if we save a gallon right now it might be the gallon you need tomorrow,” said Mark Van De Kamp, the City of Santa Maria Public Information Manager.

The water conservation hotline is (805) 925-0951.
