MARCH 11 – With portions of Bernalillo County officially experiencing extreme to exceptional drought,
the Water Authority is offering these recommendations to customers in the face of continued dry conditions:

  • Under the Water by the Numbers program, water landscapes once per week this month.
  • Plan now for a dry spring and summer: Update your irrigation system with “smart” irrigation technology and, if you have high-water-use plants in your yard, consider replacing them with desert-friendly xeric alternatives. Rebates are available to Water Authority customers (
  • Avoid water waste: Check for leaks, and don’t allow water to flow onto streets or sidewalks.
