Why be Water Wise? Arizonans have long known that water is our most precious resource. Many residents presently
enjoy a reliable, relatively inexpensive supply of high quality water.
However, water use has begun to exceed water recharge in some areas of Cochise County, generating concern about
depleting water resources. To ensure adequate water supplies for the
future, all of us need to be more water wise. This web page contains
tips for saving water indoors and outdoors. These water wise ideas can
not only help you save money on your water bill, but also benefit the
community by conserving this precious resource.
Water Wise is a public/privately funded University of
Arizona Cooperative Extension water conservation educational program.
We are here to help you do what you want, but more water efficiently. Please let us help you!
Thank you to our Water Wise Partners
- we can't do it without you!
