Chandler Activates Drought Management Plan

Conserve Like You Mean It

Due to worsening conditions on the Colorado River, the City of Chandler has activated Stage One of its Drought Management Plan, which will focus on drought public awareness and expanded water conservation promotion. Even though the City can still meet the water needs of our residents and businesses, prioritizing water conservation is more important than ever. To learn more about Chandler’s drought preparedness, visit our website:

City staff briefed City Council on June 20, providing an update on Chandler’s water supplies and the potential impacts of Colorado River shortages. Chandler is well prepared for future Colorado River shortages with a diverse water supply that includes surface water, groundwater and reclaimed water.

Surface water from the Salt and Verde Rivers is delivered by Salt River Project and surface water from the Colorado River is delivered by Central Arizona Project. The City also owns more than 30 municipal wells to access groundwater supplies when needed. Reclaimed water is a valuable water supply that reduces demand for drinkable water supplies. Reclaimed water is wastewater the City has treated for reuse and delivers for irrigation and industrial uses, to recharge the aquifer deep beneath the City and to support riparian wetlands and man-made lakes.

Water conservation works. Through water conservation, the average Chandler household uses 20% less water today when compared to 25 years ago. To learn more about Chandler “Water Conservation in Action” visit Water Conservation in Action.

Did you know that approximately 70% of residential water use happens outdoors? Xeriscape landscaping and smart irrigation controllers are powerful tools to help reduce outdoor water use, saving thousands of gallons per year.
