Why be Water Wise?  Many residents presently enjoy a reliable, relatively inexpensive supply of high quality water. However, water use has begun to exceed water recharge in some areas of Cochise County, generating concern about depleting water resources. Visit the  Water Wise Program site as well as our other Water Wise programs which include Water Wise Youth Education Programs and Water Wise Energy Smart.
