Bernalillo County’s Water Conservation Program promotes the efficient and responsible use of the County’s water resources.

We do this through:

  1. Water conservation education and outreach.
  2. Water conservation incentive programs.
  3. Requiring water conservation measures for new development, restricting use of spray irrigation between 11 a.m. and 7 p.m. during the summer, and prohibiting water waste through our Water Conservation Ordinance and supporting Water Conservation Development Standards and Guidelines.
  4. Assisting small water systems with water conservation.
  5. Leading by example by conserving water at County facilities.

The Water Conservation Program is governed by the FY21-25 Water Conservation Plan Update.
