Water Conservation

Conserving water goes beyond saving money, it ensures clean water for generations to come. Houston Water’s Conservation team offers tools, programs, and resources to help customers conserve one of our most precious resources – water.

All conservation and efficiency measures are aimed at reducing water use. This decreases the demand on our water treatment plants and extends the life of our water supplies. In the event of a drought, water shortage, or other emergency, conservation staff implements the measures listed in the City's Water Conservation Plan and Drought Contingency Plan.
