Earth Day is April 22 and is a great opportunity to think about how you can be more eco-friendly.

One great idea – practice water conservation!

Water is a precious resource we all need to work together to protect. Being water wise is a great way to pay your respect to Mother Earth and be sustainable.

Moving water takes a good deal of energy, so the less water you use, the more energy you save.  

Here in the Coachella Valley, the vast majority of tap water is pumped from deep underground. These wells use a lot of energy.

Some agencies have solar panels and other renewable power to help offset power demands.

Water conserved is the best way for our community to save. That’s why many agencies encourage their customers to remove unused grass, put in efficient irrigation timers and nozzles, and to use efficient appliances and fixtures.

Go to to find your water agency and see what programs it offers.
