The City of Carrollton’s Public Works department is responsible for delivering clean, safe drinking water to all city water customers. Within the Public Works department is the Water Resource Management Office which is charged with developing programs that promote the efficient use of water throughout our community.  Spend some time exploring the tools and tips provided here for ways to manage and conserve this most valuable resource.

Outdoor Water Conservation
The key to any successful water conservation program is to address the most efficient way to water our landscape. Growing plants and turf in Texas can be a challenge, but with just a bit of education, efficiently watering your yard can put you way ahead of the pack. Here you will find great information on our clay soil, hardy Texas plants, smart irrigation practices and more! 

Indoor Water Conservation
Thanks to technology and water conservation plumbing codes, there are many great products available for retrofitting the fixtures in your home. Most are so easy that Do-It-Yourself is a snap. Read more on ways you can save water inside the house.
