We live in the desert and water is a precious resource. Listen in as host Matt Burdick and Simone Kjolsrud, Chandler’s Water Resources Advisor, dive into the City’s drought management plans in response to Colorado River shortages, water supplies and conservation programs.
Simone describes Chandler’s water supply and the condition of the City’s three primary sources: surface water, groundwater and reclaimed water.
Investments in reclaimed water infrastructure and conservation programs have been an active part of Chandler’s water management program for more than two decades.
Today, the average Chandler household uses 20 percent less water than it did 25 years ago and an extensive reclaimed water network serves large users in south Chandler.
Simone discusses the preparations Chandler has made for Colorado River shortages, drought measures being taken in Chandler and conservation programs helping residents and businesses be part of the solution.
