We Bring Water Back to Life
Water Renewal Services gives new life to used water. What is used water? It’s every drop of water that goes down the drain, toilet or sink. We renew nearly 10 billion gallons of water annually, returning it clean and clear to the Boise River.
Boise's Energy Future
The City of Boise is committed to having all city-owned properties be net-zero energy efficient by 2040.
The Dixie Drain Phosphorus Removal Facility is a precedent-setting and innovative project that will greatly enhance water quality of the Boise and Snake Rivers by removing up to 140 pounds of phosphorus per day from water flowing downstream.

Pure Water Brew Boise
Our partners created tasty new beers and cider using water from one of Boise’s water renewal facilities that was treated and purified to drinking water quality.
Boise's Water Future
The City of Boise treats 10 billion gallons of water each year and continues to develop an innovative, long-range plan that will determine how to treat and renew the water our community uses.
Located at the West Boise Water Renewal Facility, the Boise WaterShed introduces you to water protection and conservation through hands-on exhibits and the largest concentration of public art in the state of Idaho!
