 What’s NEW With WATER

Drought Outlook

• We are strictly enforcing existing water use restrictions.
Resources to help City residents and businesses use water more efficiently.
• We are working with the County on joint drought messaging.
• 25 years of successful conservation and four separate supplies allow us to use river water preferentially and rest wells for periods of drought.
• Water levels in our wellfields have been rising for the past decade.
• We can meet total demand with wells only for days, months, or even years.

Meter Changes

Our water meters send readings out through a 3G cellular network that will soon be obsolete.  In anticipation of this we are transitioning to new meter "end points" that can send meter reads via 4G or 5G.  Additional information.

Return Flow Project 

The proposed San Juan-Chama Return Flow Project will more than double our effective supply of renewable imported surface water, allowing us to increase resiliency and preserve groundwater for use during drought.

To provide a safe, reliable, and resilient water supply to meet Santa Fe's needs.

City of Santa Fe Water believes that a safe, reliable, resilient water supply underlies the basic needs, quality of life, and prosperity of the City and its residents. 

City of Santa Fe Water is unique in the State and Region as a municipal water utility with local surface water and groundwater resources as well as surface water and groundwater resources imported from outside of our local watershed. In addition to this diverse supply portfolio City of Santa Fe Water has a nationally acclaimed conservation program. Within this context, our long term vision is to continue to be a leader in the water industry, dedicated to operations, planning, communications, resiliency, and well supported staff for the benefit of our community.
