Moving Toward a Cleaner, Safer, Healthier Environment

Cleaner Water

Water Conservation

The Department of the Interior's Bureau of Reclamation Water Conservation Field Service Program is using incentives to enhance water conservation activities through partnerships with water suppliers and other Federal, State, and local entities. In the past year, the Bureau of Reclamation has assisted a number of new efforts in the western states, including, for example, the Southern Nevada Water Authority (SNWA) and its Xeriscape Conversion Study, the largest of its type to date in the West. The SNWA project averages water savings of 39 percent. As a direct result of the study, SNWA has now launched a valley-wide retrofit xeriscape program.
