Water Reduction Encouraged During Eclipse Week 

City of Bend encourages water conservation techniques to balance out water usage spike.


As visitors begin pouring in to Bend to experience the eclipse, the City of Bend is preparing for the increase in water usage that is sure to occur by encouraging residents to watch their water usage.


These reduction measures don’t have to be big; most water usage during summer comes from landscape irrigation. By simply reducing the time that your sprinklers are on for the next week you can help keep our water source steady. Other small reduction measures include using less water while washing your dishes, turning off the water while you’re brushing your teeth or maybe finally getting around to fixing that dripping faucet. Though these small measures are especially important during the next week, they can also extend pass the eclipse to help conserve water in the long run.


And though city officials are encouraging water conservation measures, don’t be worried about water shortages. Bend Water Conservation Program Manager Mike Buettner says, “We’re well prepared to meet the increased water demands, but also want to encourage our customers to reduce water use if they can."

Staying hydrated is as important as water reduction, so though you may reduce water in other aspects of your life, don’t limit your intake of some of the best water the nation has to offer.
