The city of San Diego today unveiled a smartphone application that will let users take photographs of water waste and report the address to the Water Conservation Department.
The “Waste No Water” app, available for both iPhone and Android devices, will use GPS to automatically report the location to the city, which will respond by sending crews to resolve the problem.
“One of the key tools we have in preventing water waste is the public,” Mayor Kevin Faulconer said. “When we work together as a community, there’s nothing that San Diego can’t do. Using this app, the power to conserve water is literally in your hands.”
