El Pasoans know the value of water and recognize the importance of conserving in a desert region that often sees only nine inches of rain in a year.
Over two decades, El Pasoans have cut the city’s water consumption by 30 percent, from over 200 gallons per person per day to 129 gallons per person per day. While this is an important achievement, El Paso’s water supply strategy calls for further reductions by 2030 with a target of 118 gallons per person per day.
EPWater will honor El Paso homeowners who make every drop count with its Conservation Hero program. Residential customers can nominate themselves or someone they know to be recognized as a Residential Conservation Hero.
The Residential Conservation Hero will be recognized on the field during the July 21 El Paso Chihuahuas home game. They will receive four tickets to that game and be featured in a video and on the EPWater website and social media platforms.
Residents can take steps in their everyday lives to help with water conservation, such fixing leaks, turning off water between uses and installing more water efficient appliances or equipment.
A community culture of conservation is essential for preserving the Hueco and Mesilla aquifers for future generations.
