Water Conservation

Water conservation is critical for all of us.  By using water judiciously, we can all share in conserving water for our neighbors and for future generations.

This is a link to the Water Conservation page of the Office of the State Engineer: www.ose.state.nm.us/wucp_home_owners.html 

You can download information on many topics, such as finding and plugging leaks and water-efficient washing machines and evaporative coolers.  There is also a ton of information on outdoor water conservation and xeriscaping.

Santa Fe County also has some interesting and useful information (including swimming pool codes!) at www.santafecountynm.gov/documents/ordinances/Ordinance2004-7.pdf

On March 29, 2014, the Tano Road Association hosted a seminar on water conservation, led by Reese Baker of The RainCatcher.  We hope to provide more informational events in the future.  Please let us know what you would like to learn about at info@tanoroad.org.

Scientific American has many interesting articles about water issues. See How We Can Save Our Water.
