Conserving Water

Conservation is Critical to Our Future

Saving water is key to the future of our region.

The population in the area we service is expected to nearly double by 2030. As our communities grow, so does their need for water.

In addition to new water sources, water conservation and reuse will play a crucial role in providing the water we need in coming years. Conserving water will make Upper Trinity Regional Water District’s (UTRWD’s) current supplies last longer. This will help us meet water needs until new projects—which take years to construct—can be added to the system.

Our Conservation Efforts

Because water projects take time, UTRWD is actively working to conserve our water resources and encourage others to do the same. We have outlined our own water-saving goals in UTRWD’s 2019 Water Conservation Plan and Drought Contingency Plan. We also offer model plans to help our customers draft their own conservation / drought contingency plans.

In addition, we offer tips and tricks for landscaping and gardening with water conservation in mind. You can also explore our Conservation Garden here, or stop by our office, which displays native and water-wise plant options. UTRWD’s 2019 Water Conservation Plan and Drought Contingency Plan help us meet our own water-saving goals.

We also currently partner with the Denton County Fresh Water Supply District #1A to supply treated water for golf course irrigation, and have initiated various campaigns to inform and encourage our area neighbors about the importance of water conservation.
