SRP Water Conservation Expo: Save Water, Save $$$

Up to 70 percent of household water use is outdoors, which can lead to waste if lawn sprinklers and drip irrigation systems are not properly programmed and maintained. Learn how to reduce water use and save money on a smart irrigation controller at the 2024 SRP Water Conservation Expo™ from 8 a.m. to noon on Saturday, March 2 at the PERA Pavilion, 1 E. Continental Dr. in Tempe.

SRP’s Water Conservation Expo is a family-friendly event and the largest one-day distribution of smart irrigation controllers for lawn sprinkler and drip irrigation systems in the nation. It is also an opportunity for residents to hear from experts about water stewardship, conservation and SRP’s role in managing the Valley’s water.
