Water Conservation

An adequate supply of high quality water has become a critical issue for the future prosperity of Texas. Booming populations have increased the demand on the state’s already limited supply of high quality water. In addition, seasonal fluctuations in rainfall and periodic droughts have created a feast-to-famine cycle in Texas. In the summer months outdoor water accounts for 60-80% of home water use. Using water more efficiently will not only save money, but also help protect the quality of life and the future of Texas.
