More than 28 million homes across the United States have in-ground sprinkler systems, and most of those systems schedule watering with some sort of clock-based device. Experts estimate that as much as half the water we use outdoors may go to waste due to inefficient irrigation methods.

Take control of your controller with a WaterSense labeled weather-based or soil moisture-based model. These controllers can replace or upgrade clock-based controllers to better tailor watering schedules for landscapes.

Learn more on curbing your outdoor water use at https://www.epa.gov/watersense/watersense-labeled-controllers.

Why is our water so nasty and dirty fairly regularly?? Why don't you all have an automated system that calls people when there is a water break or people working on the line so we know to boil water or use bottled?? Other states I have lived in did. Thanks
I've lived in Avondale since 2016. Since then I've had to contact BWWB every 60-90 days about my water being brown. Today - a holiday- my water is brown .... again. When will this be corrected so it does not continue? Phone call, after phone call, after phone call to customer service reporting a "water quality issue". The # of past calls that I've made - they know me by name when I give my phone number. This is GROSS! No cooking, washing, or anything else that requires the use of running water - for an ENTIRE day. This is frustrating beyond any level of patience. What's the next step beyond customer service, a water tech comes, flushes the water, then right back at the same point in another 60-90 days??
When you take a surety deposit do you return that money with interest if it is never used?
Did you know the water for Birmingham come from here
You all are the worst. Welcome to Alabama.
We live at 702 Devon Dr in Homewood. Our neighbors at 704 have no water and our water pressure in way too low. A crew was out here yesterday late afternoon and said it was not your fault. How will you fix it if you say it is not your fault?? Where is our water? We will call the news soon if we don't get some help.
I would appreciate the name of the employee there whose phone number is 205-244-4309. She has been most helpful and I need to speak to her again ASAP but I failed to get her name.
There is a water leak on the road at. 5844 32 nd street north Birmingham al...This is in Lewisburg Gardens.Water is leaking onto the road.
Is it normal for it to take a week to have my water turned on? All other service providers have been prompt and helpful. I was originally told my water would be on by Tuesday. Called yesterday and support wouldn't even give me a time frame. This is absurd.
Unfortunately this bath tub in my daughters house (that I own) is filled with p**p water. It is a health hazard and we have been trying to get the drain fixed without any success. Evidently the drain was damaged by the water company when they installed new piping but because it is the drain line neither Birmingham Water or Sewer will take responsibility and fix it. I have spent several hundred dollars on plumbers but they cannot fix it because the damage is not on our part of the water line. If you are thinking of moving to Birmingham, you might want to consider the less than adequate utility service.
6217 Black Creek Loop N, Hoover Alabama 35244 Guinn Timmerman My water meter by the street is unreadable. It is so scratched it can't be read. I've had trouble with misread meter before. Please have someone come replace it ASAP.
