Arizona Water Conservation

Why Water Conservation Matters in Arizona

Water supplies in Arizona are already a precious resource. Given estimates that the state will almost double in population over the next 45 years, water supply challenges are only going to become more difficult.

Western Resource Advocates promotes urban water conservation as a no-regrets strategy for increasing water supplies -- one that is often cheaper, faster, and smarter than "traditional" water supply approaches that rely on obtaining more water from elsewhere.

Maximizing water conservation efforts and programs across the state will allow Arizona cities to do more with their existing water supplies.

Arizona Water Meter Report

This report looks at 15 diverse Arizona communities and evaluates their water conservation programs. The study will help utilities, researchers, policy makers, and communities can make informed decisions about the possibilities that exist for improvement in their own water conservation programs.


Estimated Water Demand and Conservation Potential of Domestic Wells in the Sierra Vista Subwatershed, Arizona Study

study

To better understand residential domestic well use for planning purposes and to identify appropriate conservation approaches, Western Resource Advocates funded a study that developed a method to estimate demand and the water conservation potential of domestic wells in the Sierra Vista Subwatershed (SVS) in southeastern Arizona.
