Save It! Your Water. Your Money. Your City. is a campaign sponsored by the City of Lancaster in partnership with LIVE Green. The Save It! web site is intended to serve as a community resource to help residents and commercial property owners conserve water, prevent pollution and encourage efforts to “soak it up” using various forms of green infrastructure. Information is presented along a continuum of effort from low to high in terms of time and cost. Everyone can do something to “save it.”

What’s the Problem?
Each year, property owners in the City of Lancaster are responsible for approximately 750 million gallons of polluted water flowing into the Conestoga River and eventually into the Chesapeake Bay.
Lancaster City needs to save this water from entering its combined sewer system to preserve clean drinking water, avoid costly fines and continue to build a healthy, vibrant community.
