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.
