In Progress

Build on the Success of Water Conservation Education and Incentives (6.O.2.)

Status Indicators: Complete | In Progress| Not Yet Started

The City of Bozeman’s Water Conservation program is well-established and offers education, water-wise and drought management resources, free sprinkler assessments, rebates/incentives for commercial and residential indoor and outdoor water conservation, and a free online water use portal for tracking home water use. The City will build on this success and expand programming to further educate the community and conserve our limited water resources.
