Mandatory Conservation Plan
Did you know that Edmond's water usage more than doubles during the hot summer months? Our daily water use is typically 10 to 11 million gallons per day. As the temperature climbs, so does our water use. During the hottest, driest part of the summer our water usage can climb to more than 25 million gallons per day!
Edmond participates in a mandatory regional water conservation plan. According to an agreement with Oklahoma City, all customer cities must implement a water conservation program at least as stringent as Oklahoma City’s water conservation program. Along with the City of Edmond, other customer cities include Norman, Moore, Piedmont, El Reno, Yukon, Mustang, Blanchard, and the Deer Creek water district.
The City of Edmond implemented a regional mandatory water conservation program on May 6, 2013.

You can help us conserve water and reduce your water costs through sound lawn care practices. For example, override your automatic sprinkler system if we've just received rain. Too much water will cause your grass to have shallow roots. You can purchase a device to add to your sprinkler system that measures the amount of water on the lawn and keeps your automatic system from coming on after, or in the midst, of rain.
Make sure you aren't wasting this vital natural resource by watering the sidewalk, street or your driveway with your water sprinklers.
With your cooperation, we can slow the flow of water this summer!
