Known for its abundant rainfall in the Pacific Northwest, it is sometimes difficult
to understand why we need to conserve water. As our community has grown, our water
needs have grown. We all need to use water wisely to make sure that we have it when
we need it, to reduce the cost of developing new supplies and to leave more water
in the rivers for fish and recreation.
The City of Tigard is committed to the protection and conservation of our natural
resources. Our efforts to achieve this goal have been through public education
at community and regional events as well as having an active school education
program. The City of Tigard is represented at events such as the Salmon Festival,
Yard, Garden and Patio Show, Balloon Festival, and Children's
Clean Water Festival.
