The 2020 Water Conservation Plan outlines the progress in which water consumption, based on the measured standard of the number of gallons used per capita per day (gpcd), is trending toward the conservation goal the city adopted in 2014 of 183 gpcd of usage.

The 2020 Water Conservation Plan Update provides four water conservation activities to facilitate reaching the city's conservation goal. These four programs are expanding and cooperating with partners and other agencies in wastewater reuse, continuing public education programs, evaluating and strengthening conservation ordinances, and installing advanced metering infrastructure and enhancing leak detection.
