The City of Surprise Water Conservation Program is an important part of the management and planning of the City’s limited water resources for today and into the future.

Surprise is involved at the local, regional, and national levels of water conservation education. By developing a few water-saving habits, our water customers can reduce their use while saving time and money, and help us continue to reach our water conservation goals.

A few tips:
  • Check your irrigation and pool systems for leaks monthly
  • Adjust your irrigation controller (timer) as the weather changes
  • Take free Water-wise Surprise landscape and water efficiency workshops
  • Check your home for leaks (toilets, faucets, water-using appliances, etc.) montlhy
  • Look for WaterSense products when replacing toilets, showerheads, and irrigation controllers
  • Prune your landscape only when it needs it
Changing your habits to include these water-saving tips may reduce your water bill and save you time and money on unnecessary repairs. Want to learn more? Subscribe to the Water – Use It Wisely newsletter for easy tips on saving water.
