The City’s Water Conservation Office hopes the chance to win a water saving showerhead entices residents to participate in a brief online survey. The Evolve showerhead costs about $40 and features ShowerStart water- saving technology that reduces wasted water and energy by alerting users when their shower is warm and waiting. Residents completing a short three- question survey by May 30 are entered in the drawing for the showerhead. The survey also contains a code participants can use to receive 25 percent off the online purchase of an Evolve showerhead at www.evolveshowerheads. com. The promotion ends May 30.

The water conservation survey is found on the home page of Chandler’s website, www.chandleraz.gov, and is intended to help the City identify which conservation programs are most important to the public. Chandler offers a number of programs ranging from home water audits and rebates to educational workshops and classroom presentations.
