Willie’s History

When Willie the Waterdrop was introduced in 1991, he was known as “Willie the Water Waster,” sharing lessons of what NOT to do. Eventually, good triumphed over evil, and “Willie the Waterdrop” became the water ambassador that he is today.

Yesterday’s kids are now today’s adults, and the water lessons learned over the decades are part of our desert city's culture. El Paso now embraces water conservation, saving water indoors and outdoors with water-smart landscaping. Citizens have significantly reduced their average water consumption over the years, but the work of water conservation never ends. Willie the Waterdrop continues his mission to educate all El Pasoans about our region's water sources and how to conserve.
