Watch an Introductory Video Learn about the reasons behind Jordan Valley Water's Efficiency Standards.
A Key Priority
As a water supply solution, Water Efficiency Standards provide several key advantages over alternative approaches to water supply planning.
Installing water-efficient landscapes for new construction is five times less expensive than replacing landscaping in the future—making efficiency standards an attractive solution.
More efficient yards and home appliances allow water to stay in rivers, streams, lakes, and wetlands—helping to avoid severe environmental impacts.
Great Looking Communities
Jordan Valley Water's standards promote landscaping styles that use less water while also achieving high curb appeal and manageable maintenance.
Sustainable Water Use
Early implementation of water efficiency standards makes room for a more moderate regional water solution that avoids extreme requirements or actions.
