- Why Conserve MA Water - The simple answer is so that we don’t run out of it. By conserving water, we can make sure there is enough for all living things — our people, our wildlife and the environment — now and in the future.
- Residents - Practicing good water conservation habits now will make it easier to adjust to a water shortage and ensure more water is available when we need it most.
- Municipalities - Here, municipal water suppliers and commissioners, town and city planners, conservation commissions and land-use board members will find a comprehensive collection of guidance, tools and resources for planning, developing and implementing an effective water conservation strategy.
- Industrial, Commercial & Institutional - Commercial businesses, corporate offices, manufacturing plants, restaurants, universities, hospitals; just about any type of enterprise or institution you can think of could not operate without significant amounts of water. In many communities, “ICI” buildings and facilities use more water per day than any other type of individual water user to operate heating and cooling systems, run restaurants and hotels, enable manufacturing and processing, provide sanitary facilities and grow landscapes.
- Agriculture - From the cranberry bogs of Lakeville to the apple orchards of the Berkshires and the dairies, nurseries and crop farms in between, all forms of commercial agriculture share a critical dependency on water.
