CanalWater sustainability is very important in our desert home. As population and consumption increases and the climate becomes more arid, obtaining adequate and sustainable water supplies will remain a high priority. Additionally, a vast amount of power is required to move water, which means water is also tied to energy and climate change. Ensuring there is enough water to go around, keeping our supplies free of pollution, ensuring adequate and equitable access, and increasing reuse options are all aspects of sustainable water that we focus on at the City.

Due to prudent planning, conservation, and hard work, Avondale has one of the most secure water supplies in the Valley! Explore the information on this page to see how you can help create a secure and sustainable water future.

Rainwater HarvestingRainwater harvesting
On average, Avondale receives less than 10 inches of rainfall per year. That means we should use the precipitation that we do get rather than letting it go to waste! The rain that falls on your property can be efficiently harvested and used to support vegetation and offset irrigation costs, just as nature intended. Learn more at the links below.
