Welcome to the City of Goodyear's Water Smart web page! Glad you found us! Our hope is that we can provide you with essential resources that will enhance your appreciation for water, and provide you insights toward its efficient use. Increasing our knowledge on how to best manage water efficiently makes sense and is just water smart!
As you know, water is a vital resource. Without it, we cannot survive, anywhere. Here in the desert both the need to have water and its scarcity are obvious. The ways we use water in our own lives and the decisions we make together about preferred water uses, acceptable water quality, and how much we are willing to pay for water will define the quality of life in this arid community forever. The way we manage our water will determine our future.
Will you join us in creating a WATER SMART community? You can get involved by:
- Visiting our website frequently - stay up to date and informed
- Community Engagement - Reporting leaks, invite others to our community
- Personal Engagement - Routinely check around your home for ways to be more water efficient.
If we all do our part to be WATER SMART we can ensure our home will remain vibrant and successful for generations to come!
HELP US "BEAT THE PEAK"!
During the summer, water use peaks very high. "Peak" water use describes the time of year when water use is at its highest due to an increase in outdoor water use. What can be done? You can help reduce the stress on our water system by partnering with the City in reducing the overall water demand. Here are some ways to help:
1. Avoid over-watering
2. Fix all leaks in less than 24 hours. Click here for how to find leaks.
3. Perform deep watering. Learn how here.
4. Consider turning off all decorative water features while temperatures exceed 100 degrees F. or limiting their use to twilight hours to reduce evaporative losses.
