How to become a Water Wise Gilbert organization
The Water Wise Gilbert program promotes efficient water use and helps commercial customers in our community save water and money. Water Wise Gilbert encourages businesses, schools, churches, hotels, and other non-residential facilities to celebrate their water savings by sharing their accomplishments. The program is free of charge.
- Step 1: Schedule a Water Efficiency Checkup with a Gilbert Water Conservation Specialist.
- Step 2: Save water by implementing the suggestions from the Water Conservation Specialist's follow up report.
- Step 3: Promote and utilize the free materials provided by Gilbert Water Conservation to share your organization's accomplishments with your customers. With your permission, we'll also brag about you on Gilbert websites and social media.
- Step 4: Maintain the achieved water savings.
Commercial customers account for roughly 21% of Gilbert’s overall water use. This includes churches, HOAs, restaurants, schools, offices, and hotels.
Conserving water at a school, church, restaurant, office building, or hotel can provide multiple forms of savings. Water conservation can help cut costs in water, wastewater, energy, and maintenance at your facility.
- Save water: Less water is used to achieve the same outcome.
- Save money: Reduced water consumption means you pay less for water. Plus, you'll have reduced sewer fees since your facility is sending less water to the wastewater treatment plant.
- Save energy: Reducing hot water use can save money on energy bills.
To schedule a Water Efficiency Checkup with a Water Conservation Specialist, call (480) 503-6098 and select option 3 or fill out the online form.
