Washington County has experienced tremendous increase in growth, which, in turn, has created an obvious need for conservation practices to be developed and implemented in order to maintain quality of life.
In August 1993, the District approved a Long- term Framework for Water Resource Management, Development, and Protection Plan. This plan states “the District shall develop a water conservation plan that promotes public education and information dissemination concerning water conservation; and promotes the adoption of technologies, practices, and devices which will yield improvements in the efficiency and management of water use.”
These elements led the district to develop a water management and conservation plan in 1996. It has since gone through several revisions. The most recent was in 2010.
