Winter weather can result in frozen pipes followed by costly repairs. Saving water is always in season and should be a part of your regular winterizing routine to help reduce your utility bill and protect our precious natural resource. Click here to see the City's recommended winter precautions. 


The City of Santa Fe 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 50 percent since tracking began in 1995. Water customers decreased average daily water use from 101 gallons per person per day (GPCD) in 2013 to 95 GPCD in 2014, the first time the city has ever fallen below the 100 GPCD threshold. 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.
