Abstract: Water conservation has become an increasingly attractive option to ensure the future reliability of water supplies. This is especially true in the desert southwest, where the demand for water is increasingly greater than supply. Many desert cities like Tucson, AZ have substantially reduced their demand for water within the past decade. They realized years ago that conserving water is by far the most cost effective and reliable way of attaining a new source of supply. The City of Albuquerque, the main water purveyor for the City of Albuquerque, is now aggressively pursuing demand side management. It has recently drafted a Large Water Users Ordinance which mandates water conservation among industrial, commercial, and institutional (lCI) user groups. The Ordinance and it's components were called for in the City of Albuquerque's Long-Term Water Conservation Strategy adopted by City Council in March of 1995
