Conservation Tips

  1. Water ConservationCheck for leaks in outdoor faucets, pipes and hoses. Slight drips can add up to many gallons of wasted water.
  2. Water your lawn only when it’s needed. A good way to check if your lawn needs watering is to step on the grass. If it springs back up when you move, it doesn't need water.
  3. Avoid watering your lawn on windy days. Wind will carry water away form the intended area.
  4. Water your lawn in the cooler parts of the day to avoid excess evaporation.
  5. Don’t water the gutter. Position your sprinklers so water lands on the lawn or garden not on paved areas.
  6. Check toilet for leaks. Put a few drops of food coloring in your toilet tank. If, without flushing, color begins to appear in the bowl, you know there is a leak that needs to be repaired.
    Install water saving showerheads or flow restrictors. Local hardware or plumbing supply stores stock these, and they are easy to install.
  7. Please remember, not only are you wasting money when you let the water run needlessly, you are also wasting a very precious resource!

Thank you for conserving!
