Water conservation has been a hot topic in Tucson for many years. Drought conditions in Arizona and neighboring states make how we use water as important as how much we use. Implementing more efficient ways to utilize water in our households goes a long way to making this precious commodity last. The City already rewards its residents with rebates when they purchase an energy-efficient washerreplace their toilets, harvest rainwater or install a gray water irrigation system. The organizers of the Tucson Sustainable Landscapes Expo 2019 turn homeowners' focus to the yard.

Learn how to lower your household water usage with fun, interactive exhibits, food, live music, and much more at the Tucson Sustainable Landscapes Expo 2019.
