The City of Glendale entered into an agreement this week that aims to conserve thousands of acre-feet of water in Lake Mead.

The city council has recently agreed to conserve up to 30% of the Colorado River water the city’s allotted through the Central Arizona Project. These savings equate to about 7,000 acre-feet of water per year over the next three years.
