Water Conservation

10 Easy Tips

 

  1. Water the lawn in the evening when evaporation is less likely to occur. Avoid watering during the heat of the day or when it is windy. 

  2. Place a layer of mulch around plants and trees to avoid excessive evaporation. 

  3. Prevent water runoff from your sprinkler system. Watering the sidewalk, gutter or street wastes water. 

  4. Use a broom, not a hose, when cleaning driveways and walkways. 

  5. Use a hose with a shut off nozzle to wash the car. 

  6. Take shorter showers. 

  7. Turn off the water after wetting your toothbrush, use a glass of water to rinse. Avoid letting the faucet run. 

  8. Check faucets and pipes for leaks. A small drip from a worn washer can waste 20 or more gallons a day. 

  9. Turn dishwasher on only when full. 

  10. Use the proper water level on load size selection on the washing machine.
