2022 Events 

Water Smart Workshops 2022: While in-person workshops and events have been suspended until further notice, the Water Authority will be holding a series of virtual WaterSmart classes this winter season. Qualifying participants will earn a $20 rebate on their water bill-and learn about the three steps to landscape success in Albuquerque and Bernalillo County.
Only one rebate per account.

Want a desert friendly landscape? Learn how in this free online class. The Water Authority Conservation experts will show you how with a three step plan to make your landscape more resilient and beautiful.
