Prior to moving to Los Alamos, I worked for a small business that contracted conservation services to many utility providers across the Southwest, including the Albuquerque and Bernalillo County Water Utility Authority (ABCWUA). During that time, Albuquerque witnessed a 30-percent decrease in its overall water consumption, totaling more than 100 billion gallons saved – enough water to serve the needs for the county of Los Alamos for more than 70 years.
The average water consumption fell from a whopping 250 gallons per person per day to only 174 gallons per person per day. In comparison, Los Alamos’ current average consumption is 157 gallons per person per day. The success of the conservation initiatives can be attributed to many different factors, such as visionary civic leaders, large-budget public relations programs and committed government agencies. However, the ABCWUA’s conservation program could not have achieved these savings without the support of an additional key component: the development of enduring conservation partnerships.
