Save Water, Save Rivers, Build Community

Tucson C2E provides funding to improve our urban waterways and wildlife habitats. Conserve water at your home or business, donate your water savings to Tucson C2E, and connect your water conservation to community action. Contact us to learn more or join C2E today to MAKE YOUR DROPS COUNT!

Help green our streets and enhance our washes and waterways!  Become a sustaining member of Tucson C2E.  You can make a contribution online or by using the "Open Space/Riparian" box on your Tucson Water or Pima County Wastewater utility bill. If 5% of customers in the Tucson Water service area join C2E, they would conserve an estimated 250,000,000 gallons of water annually and provide more than $500,000 for restoration projects each year!

Tucson C2E, the first C2E program in the nation, was founded in 2011 through a collaboration between the University of Arizona Water Resources Research Center, Tucson Water (our local water utility), and the nonprofits Sonoran Institute and Watershed Management Group. The program is now overseen by the Tucson C2E Advisory Council.
