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. Governor Herbert challenged Utah to improve efficiency by 25 percent by 2025. By working together, we know we can achieve and exceed this goal!
GOVERNOR'S WATER CONSERVATION TEAM
The Governor's Water Conservation Team (GWCT), established in 2000, consists of conservation representatives from the Utah Division of Water Resources, the five largest water conservancy districts in Utah…and you
Slow the Flow. Save H2O, funded by the GWCT, 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 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 so many Utahns step up to use water wisely!
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.
