Washington County’s 2019 water use represents a more than 30% decrease in per capita water use since 2000. The district is committed to ongoing conservation as part of the county’s comprehensive, long-term water supply plan.

Washington County’s Water Supply Plan through 2060

The district is planning water resources decades in advance because Washington County is one of the fastest-growing regions in the nation and water projects take decades to permit and build.

To conserve potable water supplies for Washington County’s rapidly growing population and economy, secondary (untreated) water is used to irrigate parks, golf courses, schools, churches, cemeteries and other landscapes.
