Tips for Taking Water Waste Photos
• DO aim to capture an overview of the scene.
• DO try to include a reference point (such as an address painted on the curb) that will help us locate the water waste when we’re in the field.
• DO show where the water waste may be originating from, if possible.
• In general, a wider perspective is most helpful; however, DO include close-up photos if needed to show specific details about the source or nature of the water waste.
Thank you for your report. A conservation specialist will investigate as soon as possible. Due to privacy regulations, we will not notify you of the findings. However, if you see continued water waste two weeks after submitting your report, please contact us at 415.945.1578.
