Our ongoing goal is to make a difference to the amount of water being used in the Sierra Vista Sub Watershed through our various programs. Here's a look at the impact we've had so far in 2015:
915 - the number of low flush toilets we've helped to install. Of these, 516 were in Sierra Vista, 311 were outside the city and 43 were installed within four miles of the San Pedro River.
14,047 - the number of square feet that saw high water use lawns and landscaping replaced by artificial turf in residential neighborhoods. That amounts to more than 420,000 gallons of water being saved every year.
220 - the number of 50 and 60 gallon rain barrels we've sold to area homeowners wanting to do their part to conserve water.
48 - the number of rainwater harvesting tanks we've helped to finance. The average capacity of those tanks is 1,746 gallons, which means potential annual water savings in the hundreds of thousands.
