Do 1 Thing” is a 12-month program that makes it easy to prepare yourself, your family, and our community for emergencies and disasters because preparedness tasks are broken down into small, manageable steps.

Efficient Balance:
Community Growth
& Water Use

The Morgan Hill community has grown over the past 20 years, yet the same is not true for water use. In fact, local water use in 2020 was just about the same as it was in 2000! While thinking about growth during a water shortage is common, the connection between growth and water use is weaker than one might expect. This is largely because new development is much more efficient and Morgan Hill residents and businesses are now using water far more carefully than in the past. There are numbers showing 20-year population and water use that may help clarify trends.

Past droughts and the current drought always force water restrictions that may seem difficult to adhere to, but it's critical that we do follow all water use standards. Please visit the City's website for a reminder on current water use and regulations.
