Save Water at Your School
The San Bernardino City Unified School District is committed to doing our part to help conserve water during California’s historic drought. Following restrictions set by our water providers and the State, we will
use our limited water resources wisely. While our lawns may look a
little brown, we know the public will understand.
To Report Water Waste:
With schools spanning over 90 square
miles and covering thousands of acres of property, we need the public's
help. Please contact us if you notice any leaks, broken sprinklers or safety hazards on school sites or SBCUSD office locations by reporting this to us.
Please click HERE if you witness water waste at an SBCUSD facility to complete our water waste report form. You can also phone in a tip to our Environmental Safety Office (909) 381-1224.
