In Peoria, water conservation is a way of life. Peoria actively protects and preserves its diverse water supply through aquifer recharge, direct reuse of reclaimed water for landscaping and other non-drinking water demands, as well as planning and building reliable water infrastructure. Our water customers also play an integral part, recognizing the importance of saving water as a key part of living in a desert environment.
There are three water-saving rebates available to homeowners and commercial customers who wish to be more conscious of their home water usage. Rebates are available to City of Peoria Water Utility customers only. All rebate application requests must be sent within 3 months of installation. A limited number of rebates are available each fiscal year and are offered on a first-come, first-served basis.
The xeriscape garden is located in front of Peoria City Hall (8401 W Monroe St) on the east side. There are dozens of Arizona-friendly plants on display as well as educational signs to help residents embrace using native plants and desert-friendly landscaping practices.
Peoria offers an adult education series on a wide range of water conservation and sustainable topics. From irrigation systems how-to’s to recycling, we have the class for you. The series, Sustainable University, is free to everyone but registration is encouraged. These free classes and workshops are offered by City of Peoria.
Peoria offers two Project Wet festivals each year to reach all Peoria ISD 4th grade students. At the festivals students learn about the water cycle what the sources or water are in Peoria and much more. To learn more about youth education opportunities and potential classroom presentations please contact Victoria.Caster@peoriaaz.gov.
