Can conservation meet our needs without this source of supply?
Water conservation is always the first step in preserving the water supply. The City has been actively encouraging water conservation, having adopted a 20% reduction goal. We offer free surveys and conservation fixtures, and we are working to educate the community on ways to reduce water waste and limit usage. We do this through providing free water wise classes and mobilizing an employee outreach team that educates/participates in community events. However, despite our best efforts, water conservation cannot meet all of our water demands.
