Environmental Protection

Our water conservation goals include the following:

  • Sustainability– Reducing demand now ensures availability of water for future generations.
  • Energy Conservation– Water pumping, distribution, and wastewater treatment facilities consume a significant amount of energy.  In some regions of the world, over 15% of total electricity consumption is devoted to water management.
  • Habitat Conservation– Minimizing human water use helps preserve fresh water habitats for local wildlife and migrating waterfowl, as well as reducing the need to build new water infrastructures.
  • Financial– Reducing water consumption per capita delays the necessity to invest in new water supplies and infrastructure.
