Santa Fe Water Convservation

Santa Fe Water Convservation

When you live in the high mountain desert of the Southwest, it is wise to conserve water. Santa Fe averages about 13" of rainfall per year, so we citizens are highly water aware. 

Santa Fe's water sources come from - reservoirs in the mountains east of the city, aquifers under the City of Santa Fe and Santa Fe County - water diversion from the Rio Grande river. Water restrictions occur at various times of year in City of Santa Fe and Santa Fe County. 

As a Santa Fe home owner, be wise to make water conservation an ongoing practice:

- water catchment from rooftop to storage tanks, drip irrigate with a timer for garden

- surround your home by trees suitable to 7000' climate and perennial shrubs / flowers / use heavy mulch to hold the groundwater

- buyer new water saving appliances / low flow toilets, dishwasher, washer/dryer, hot water heater. You will experience substantial savings, especially if you are on the Santa Fe City or Santa Fe County water systems.

- Filter your home water systems, to improve the life and maintenance of appliances up to 25%

- Well owners / have your wells inspected & maintained every 3 years, before winter.

- Check for State of New Mexico and Federal tax credits for making these investments.
