Here you will find tips for increasing conservation, details on water- and money-saving rebates and, most importantly, ways to eliminate water waste. We’re glad you could join us on this journey toward a more sustainable future.
Spring Water Saving Tips
Use a weather based irrigation controller to automatically adjust watering schedules according to climate and need.
Raise the blade on the lawn mower; longer blades of grass encourage deeper roots which require less water.
Water in the early morning or evening to minimize evaporation.
Place porous materials, such as gravel, around your garden to let water seep into the ground to plants’ roots.
Use rain barrels to capture water for later use; check for water agency rebates.
Find and fix leaks; dye tabs are a quick and simple way to check for leaky pipes.
Place mulch around gardens and planters to retain moisture.
Sweep driveways and patios clean rather than hosing them off.
