WHY USE WATER WISELY?
Utah is one of the top five driest states in the nation and is one of the fastest-growing. Our population will nearly double by 2065! The need to use water efficiently is imperative to meeting future water needs. Water conservation goals were established for nine different regions around the state for municipal and industrial water conservation in 2019. This is the first time conservation goals have been established on a regional level and they build on the previously established statewide goal of reducing per-capita use by 25% by 2025. By working together, we know we can reach and exceed these new goals!
GOVERNOR'S WATER CONSERVATION TEAM

Slow the Flow. Save H2O, funded by the Conservation Team partners, is an education campaign designed to raise awareness, empower people, and connect Utahns to tools and resources. This campaign is part of a bigger statewide movement, including independent regional and local programs, to promote sustainable water use.

Utah Division of Water Resources
1594 West North Temple, Salt Lake City, UT 84116
The Utah Division of Water Resources is committed to taking water efficiency in our state to the next level. We partner with policy leaders, local communities, organizations, water suppliers and academic institutions to provide the tools and resources necessary for sustainable growth. We support water conservation through planning, statewide rebates, water-wise demonstration gardens, classes, certifications, online resources, social media and strategic campaigns. We are excited to see the conservation progress Utahns have achieved! All Utahns across all sectors need to continue to look for ways to use this precious resource efficiently.
Our mission includes Three Pillars:
- Do Your Part: There is not an entity or individual that shoulders all of the responsibility for, or is the exception to, water efficiency. We all need to do what we can to use water wisely.
- Every Step is Progress: Whether the improvement is fixing a leak, installing a low flow toilet, adjusting sprinkler systems and timers, or installing water-wise landscaping, we cheer the change.
- Efficiency is Utah’s Ethic: We do not conserve water because we have a wet or dry year. We are efficient because as Utahns we are not wasteful.
