Water is precious here in the desert. We strive to use every drop as efficiently as possible because saved drops = saved water. In fact, in 2018, Gilbert residents, staff, HOAs, businesses, and churches saved 375 million gallons of water through a combination of free Water Conservation programs!

Understanding how water moves around the planet is something most of us learned at a young age. Natural forces, such as evaporation, condensation, precipitation and transpiration constantly change the state of water.
