Water Conservation

Because we live in a desert, water is our most precious and vital resource, and we must all do our part to use water wisely and ensure an adequate and safe water supply for future generations. Water conservation will not only help save water, it will also save you money.

Protect Your GW Day 2014
September 9 is National Protect Your Groundwater Day! Celebrate the water conservation by irrigating on a shorter schedule, turning the water off while brushing your teeth, or any of the other tips that can be found at the links below. Follow this link to find more conservation tips and a water use calculator. Let us know how you are going to celebrate on our Facebook and Twitter accounts (@townofmarana) by using the hashtag #maranautilities.

The Town of Marana Utilities Department is a member of the Water Conservation Alliance of Southern Arizona (Water CASA). Through this membership we receive conservation materials and handouts, which are available free of charge at our office at 5100 W. Ina Rd. The conservation material available ranges across conservation methods from a booklet on selection and caring of desert-adapted plants to a double-sided sheet of ways to save water inside and outside the home.

In addition to the conservation material available at our office, we have a Water Meter Monitor (WMM) that allows you to read your water meter from inside your home. The WMM is very easy to use and doesn't cost you a dime. It can be used to track your watering activities such as how much water is being used every time you take a shower, run the dishwasher, or wash clothes. The WMM is a useful tool to assist you in lowering your water bill by identifying which activities use the most water and where water consumption can be reduced. As a result of conserving water, you will be billed less per month, thus saving you money.

If you are interested in utilizing the WMM or receiving a conservation materials packet, please visit our office or contact us at 520-382-2570.
