Water Conservation

We live in one of the driest and fastest growing areas of the state and have a limited water supply. But thanks to you, our community members, we are making every drop count. Last year, we saved more than 400 million gallons of water despite a 5% increase in population… now that’s love! Let’s save even more in 2022! The following are easy ways to save:

Outdoors:

  • Follow the seasonal water schedule
  • Don’t irrigate on rainy or windy days
  • Limit grass to functional areas
  • Use water-efficient plants
  • Replace or repair leaking irrigation equipment

Indoors:

  • Turn off the tap while brushing teeth or shaving
  • Shorten showers
  • Take showers instead of baths
  • Fix indoor leaks like running toilets
  • Use a plugged sink when hand washing dishes

Power Cost Adjustment

On your next utility bill, you may notice a seperate line item – “Power Cost Adjustment”. The City Council recently approved the Power Cost Adjustment as a tool to protect both the customers and the city from fluctuating power supply costs. If power supply costs increase or decrease, the customers bill will be adjusted accordingly. The adjustments will be based on a six month rolling average and implemented monthly.
