The Bernalillo County Water Conservation Program provides water conservation education and outreach to residents of Bernalillo County. Primary outreach modes are:

  1. Water efficiency consultations for home and business owners*
    • Water efficiency consultations provide recommendations on water conservation measures that are tailored for an individual home or business. Consultations evaluate the efficiency of plumbing fixtures, appliances, and irrigation systems; irrigation scheduling; plant selection; rainwater harvesting opportunities; and leaks. Please contact the Water Conservation Program at 848-1500 or to schedule a consultation.
  2. Water conservation workshops with the Bernalillo County Open Space Program and other local partners
    • Workshops have been suspended due to COVID restrictions, but will resume when large group gatherings are permitted.
  3. Support for conferences and educational programming by local partners
