CAMARILLO : Water District Offers New Shower Heads
Ventura County residents who get their water from the Camrosa Water District can exchange their shower heads for free, low-flow units, a spokeswoman for the water district said.
The water-conserving shower heads, which use about half as much water as regular shower heads, are available at the district’s office, 7385 Santa Rosa Road in Camarillo, spokeswoman Gina Manchester said. Camrosa has about 2,000 of the low-flow shower heads on hand and has access to 3,000 more, administrative analyst John Murray said.
But the district has given away only about 20 of the devices since the program began Sept. 6, he said last week.
Camrosa received the shower heads free from its two water suppliers, the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California and Calleguas Municipal Water District, Murray said.
The low-flow shower heads use 2.4 gallons of water per minute, compared with about five gallons per minute for regular shower heads, he said.
