In Gilbert, our Water Conservation Team works with Homeowner Associations, churches, schools, businesses, multifamily apartments, and other commercial water users to help them use water wisely. Through our Water Wise Gilbert program, participants receive a customized water budget for their landscapes, based on the square footage of lawn and shrubs at their specific site. These water budgets guide our customers so that they know exactly how much water their landscape needs to thrive. Stakeholders can see how close they are to their water use target each month, quickly identify leaks, and make changes as needed. Additionally, customers receive a free water efficiency audit of their indoor operations as well. Our Water Conservation Team helps them identifies opportunities for water efficiency improvements and helps them come up with a customized action plan to prioritize and address the situation.
To be labeled Water Wise Gilbert, a site must be within 120% of their annual landscape water budget and remedy any on-site leaks. Water Wise Gilbert sites receive promotional materials so they can brag to residents, customers, and stakeholders about their wise water management and efforts. The Town of Gilbert celebrates these partners through social media, our website, and annually at Town Council meetings. In 2020, Gilbert celebrated 123 partners as Water Wise Gilbert designees. Additionally, many Gilbert-owned sites meet this distinction every year, including our parks, streets and many facilities. Our Water Wise Gilbert partners know water is precious here in the desert and they do their part to save!
