WaterWise... Water Isn't All You Save

Water conservation continues to be an important source of supply for the City of Bend. By doing more with less, the City’s water supplies last longer into the future. That’s good news for everyone - water customers save on monthly bills, the City saves by stretching current water supplies further, and the community continues to enjoy this precious resource and healthy environment for generations to come. WaterWise – water isn’t all you save!
