Conserve • Educate • Lead
The City began a "lead by example" Water Conservation Program in 1997, building a comprehensive and effective program which has resulted in Santa Feans reducing per capita water consumption by more than 39 percent since tracking began in 1995. Reducing gallons per capita per day (GPCD) is one measure of success for any water conservation program, and Santa Fe is a leader in the Southwest.

Water Conservation Website
In 2013, the Water Conservation Office launched a new website, Save Water Santa Fe. On the website you will find a wealth of water conservation information including:
- Rebates and Incentives
- Finding and Fixing Leaks
- Water Conservation Classroom
- Outdoor Water Saving Tips
Water Use Restrictions - city rules on when and how to water so as to conserve water and avoid water use violation fees.
Landscape Irrigation Design Standards (LIDS) - a comprehensive design standard created for the Santa Fe area.
Water Conservation Committee - assists with policy and evaluates specific programs related to water conservation.
The Bad Flapper was produced in conjunction with national Fix-A-Leak week. The Bad Flapper, Santa Fe's symbolic villainess of household water leaks, helps raise awareness about how small fixes can add up to big water savings.
