Water Saving Tips

  1. Water only in the early morning or late evening to reduce evaporation. Keep sprinklers adjusted so they are not spraying side walks and driveways. If you have a dry spot, water by hand. Mow your lawns at no lower than 3 (three) inches to help it keep the moisture in the soil.
  2. Bath in the tub when possible filling tub with just a few inches of water. Showers should be as brief as possible. Turn off water while lathering up and then back on to rinse off.
  3. Water trees and shrubs by hand. Don't let the water run unattended.
  4. Washing your car should be done using a bucket or a hose with a control valve. Don't let the hose run even on your lawn.
  5. When brushing your teeth or shaving don't let the water run.
  6. Place a plastic bottle of water in toilet tank to reduce flush water.
  7. When doing laundry or using dish washer always run full loads. If you can't wait make sure water level setting is correct.
  8. Always repair leaks in faucets, toilet tanks, control valves, and sprinklers. A small leak can waste up to 6,000 gallons in a year.
  9. Any other ways you can determine to conserve our precious resource of water would be appreciated.
  10. One inch of water a week to maintain a viable landscape. Please review the lawn water guide on the web site. The information was prepared by the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation and the Southeaster Water Conservancy District.
