The Center for Water Efficient Landscaping (CWEL) at Utah State University located in Logan, UT, is a research and outreach center designed to improve the efficient use of water for landscape irrigation. 

CWEL's mission is
to promote water conservation through environmentally, socially, and
economically sound landscape management practices.


CWEL is unique among water conservation efforts in that its mission is restricted to working within the issue of efficient landscape water use only.

Currently, it is estimated that approximately 50-65% of Utah's culinary water is used for landscape irrigation. Research has demonstrated that the amount of water applied to landscapes could be reduced substantially without affecting landscape quality or consumer lifestyles. Water use could be reduced even further if alternative landscape designs and management programs were practiced.

CWEL's specific goals currently include research on water requirements of trees and turfgrass, effects of short-term drought on landscapes, development and use of drought tolerant grasses and landscape plants, and characterization of community-wide landscape water demand and use patterns.
