The Cochise Water Project's goal is to have a significant impact on the amount of water being drawn from the aquifer within the Sierra Vista Sub Watershed.
Thanks to the success of our programs, we are well on the way to achieving and maintaining our mission of water conservation.
Our plan this year was to install 1,000 low flush toilets. So far in 2015 we have installed 783. Of these, 483 are in Sierra Vista, 263 are outside of the city limits, and 37 are within four miles of the San Pedro River, which is a particular area of focus.
We have also supplied 194 rainwater harvesting barrels this year - 115 in Sierra Vista, 73 outside the area, and 6 within four miles of the river.
Additionally, 24 households, businesses and organizations took advantage of our turf rebate program, which will save 410,000 gallons of water per year.
We still have 50 gallon rainwater barrel kits available at just $50 each. They are a great way to start your water conservation efforts on a smaller scale at a very affordable price. For more information call us at (520) 732-2014.
