The need for safe, clean water is one we all share. There are things every water user can do to conserve Massachusetts’ vital water resources. This website provides information and tools specifically for Massachusetts water users.
The simple answer: so we have enough when we need it. By conserving water, we minimize those periods when water scarcity is a problem. This ensures there is enough water for our people, wildlife and the environment – now and in the future.
Water conservation – it all starts at home. Visit this section for an interactive Home Water Use Calculator, rundown of common indoor and outdoor water uses and guide to reading your water bill.
Municipal water suppliers and commissioners, planners, conservation commissions and land-use board members all have a role to play in protecting and conserving water.
Commercial businesses, offices, manufacturing plants, restaurants, universities, and hospitals all need water. How can they improve efficiency? Learn more here about water use audits and best practices for more efficient indoor and outdoor water use.
From the cranberry bogs of Lakeville to the apple orchards of the Berkshires, the dairies, nurseries and crop farms in between, all depend critically on water. Agricultural water conservation strategies can help ensure their sustainability.
Massachusetts schools and teachers play a critical role in the future of water conservation by helping students become more aware of water as a precious natural resource, and by providing ways to take an active role in conserving it.
