Water conservation is a critical component of Bend’s total water management plan. In fact, water conservation is one of our four water supplies along with surface, well, and reclaimed water. When you conserve water you’re actually leaving water in the river or aquifer, reducing your carbon footprint by saving energy, helping to delay future well infrastructure cost, and cutting down on potential stormwater runoff. It's easy to do your part – be WaterWise.
