Water Conservation

The City of Alamogordo has been proactive and aggressive in its approach to water conservation. We have received state and national recognition for our successful efforts. Due to the commitment of our citizens, per capita water consumption has been reduced dramatically. Our highest per capita rate was in 1992, with a consumption rate of 261.28 gallons per capita per day (gpcd). With significant changes in how we all managed this vauluable resource, consumption was reduced steadily as drought conditions worsened; and we were extremely pleased to announce our 2004 consumption rate of 121.40 gpcd.
