Council member Mark Clark has frequently plugged and promoted Bullhead City’s water conservation program. The city uses a fund to subsidize citizens who install water conservation plumbing, utility and appliance features and those who replace turf to reduce water use for landscaping.
Citizens at first were slow to make use of the program. Clark, however, said it appears promotion has paid off as lots of lawns have been replaced with water friendly landscape features in the last year.
“During that time the city removed 57,865 square feet of lawn space within the city limits,” Clark said. He noted that the city spent a little more than $100,000 on the water conservation program over the year-long period ending in July and that $200,000 more is budgeted for the program this fiscal year.
