Welcome to the Utah Division of Water Resources’ water conservation site. Here you will find resources to help you conserve, data on our current water supply and what Utah is doing to preserve and protect our water.
Water is a limited natural resource, with only 3% freshwater across the planet’s surface. Additionally, only 0.5% of all the earth’s water is accessible freshwater – surface water in rivers, streams and lakes. We encourage you to be a steward of Utah’s water by using it wisely and sharing information with others.
Our population will double by 2065, so stretching our water supply is critical. Traditionally, two-thirds of Utah’s growth has been from a “natural increase,” from the population having children. This percentage is declining with more people moving in. People have discovered Utah is a great play to live, work and play. Unfortunately, they don’t bring water with them. Conservation is crucial to ensuring we have water now and for future generations.
