Efficiency and responsible stewardship are important components of Erie's water management strategy. Erie has a long history of water efficiency and conservation practices. View more about the innovative strategies in the updated Water Efficiency Plan and the Drought & Water Supply Shortage Plan below.
During the development of the 2021 Water Plans, a variety of water efficiency and conservation measures and programs were evaluated to determine their compatibility with Erie’s objectives and water supply system and the ability to achieve the target water savings.

Help achieve 10 in 10!
