Harvesting Rainwater - Tucson

The climate system in Tucson poses unique challenges to its residents, ranging from extremely high temperatures in the summer to monsoon rains in June. According to the U.S. Drought Monitor (USDM), our local eco-system is experiencing moderate drought conditions. Also, uncertainty in our local water supply can bring increased water costs for consumers across the Old Pueblo. Armed with this knowledge Southern Arizonans can take advantage of rainwater harvesting.

Installing a rainwater harvesting system helps in lowering your monthly water bill, keeps your plants thriving, and reduces your environmental impact. To support Tucsonans in their conservation efforts, the City of Tucson offers a rainwater harvesting rebate, which will aid in covering the costs of constructing a system on your property.
