Water Conservation

It Pays to Save

The more water you use, the more it costs. So it pays to save.

In the western United States, more than half of residential water goes on landscapes and lawns. Drought-tolerant gardening and Xeriscape™ promote creative approaches to water-conserving landscapes by helping people improve their soils, plant drought-tolerant flowers and shrubs, and use efficient irrigation techniques. Xeriscape can reduce your landscape water use by 60 percent or more.

Inside your home, there are many easy ways to save everyday.
