Water Resources: Individual Actions

The average water use breakdown for properties in Tucson shows approximately 60% of water is used indoors and 40% of water is used outdoors. There are many things you can do to reduce your water consumption. Water conservation is a way to reduce water use, capturing and using greywater is an example of reusing water, and rainwater harvesting is a way to replace groundwater use with other water resources. These are steps individuals can take to help conserve water. Keep in mind that water and energy uses are connected because it takes water to create energy and it takes energy to deliver water. Each gallon of gasoline used requires 1,000 gallons of water to produce. Visit our Energy and Climate Change page to learn more ways to conserve water, by reducing your energy use!
