One of the most valuable water sources is water that is not used. Water conservation is the beneficial reduction in water use, waste, and loss. Conservation is the most economical and environmentally protective resource management tool, helping Fresno meet the many challenges of water supply.

In order to address various water issues and ensure the Fresno metro area has a reliable water supply through 2050, the City of Fresno invited other local water agencies to help develop the Fresno Metropolitan Water Resource Plan. The plan, which was adopted by the Fresno City Council in 1996, called for a conjunctive use program, combining groundwater, treated surface water, artificial recharge, and an enhanced water conservation program.

On April 25, 2014, Govenor Jerry Brown issued an Executive Order to strengthen the State's ability to manage water and habitat in the drought. The Governor has called on Californians to redouble their efforts to conserve water. The City of Fresno, along with other local water organizations, strongly endorses the need for water reductions.

The City of Fresno also actively supports the challenge for all Californian's to achieve a 20% per capita reduction in urban water demand by 2020 and conservation measures in place to achieve this goal.

As a partner in the state-wide, Save Our Water campaign, the City of Fresno actively promotes the campaign recommendations aimed at helping Californians reduce their everyday water use. Click the link above to learn more about the campaign and how Real People are making Real Savings.
