Why Conserve Water?

because things will be different in the future…

POPULATION INCREASE
The population of the Boise Metro area is estimated to increase to 1.6 million people by 2060. This population growth will demand more water for both residential and business use.

HIGH WATER-USE RATES
Idaho has the highest water-use rate in the nation, twice the national average.

CLIMATE CHANGE
With changing weather patterns, we anticipate both drought and an earlier snow pack.  An earlier snowpack will affect irrigation for Idaho’s growing season.

Developing water stewardship behaviors now will improve water-use conditions later and ensure adequate supplies for our children’s future. Innovative education is one key to a sustainable community.
