The Glendale Water Services Department’s Water Conservation program is celebrating 30 years of working with the community to save water – our most precious resource! Established in 1985, the mission of the Water Conservation Office is to provide a comprehensive water conservation program that promotes efficient water use by providing the information and inspiration needed—to save water.  This comprehensive program achieves water savings by raising awareness, providing incentives, and fostering community support. Smart water use, landscape programs and education are all part of the program.

Far from being outdated, the City’s conservation program is more vibrant than ever. The future success of our program depends on our children, the next generation of leaders. There is no better way to celebrate our 30-year anniversary than with families at the Glendale Main Library on Wednesday, December 2 from 4-6 p.m. Please join us and bring the kids!

Coordinated by the Glendale Water Services Department – Conservation and Sustainable Living Division, the free event will include a water conservation themed magic show, and hands-on water education activities. Water – Use It Wisely’s official mascot Wayne Drop will also be there to take “selfies” and photos with guests!

Attendees will receive free refreshments and eco-friendly prizes, such as a high-efficiency showerhead, garden hose nozzle, four-pack of CFL’s, and programmable thermostat. Children will receive a free school supply kit that contains a pencil, eraser, pencil sharpener, and ruler. The kits and prizes will be distributed at the end of the event and will be made available on a first-come, first-served basis. See event flyer for details.

This event is free, but advance registration is required by calling 623-930-3550 or emailing For more information, visit
