Conservation plays an important role in water resource management. The Medford Water Commission has updated its Water Management and Conservation Plan, which contains projections for the next 50 years. The plan will be reviewed in five years and a new plan will be required in 10 years.
The Commission offers a variety of resources, services, programs and information to help you meet your water conservation goals and save money as well.
