Water Demand Management

Our supply of clean water is affected by a number of factors, including many that shape demand for potable water. Some of these factors, such as weather, are beyond our control. The extent to which we are able to influence other factors, such as the kinds of uses to which we put our water, the growth in population and households in our region, and the effectiveness of our water conservation efforts are also uncertain. We have historically demonstrated great success in reducing the demand for potable water through voluntary conservation.

With the exception of Yuma, most Arizona cities have made substantial reductions in residential water use, with Prescott’s efforts appearing to be most successful in recent years.
