Some voluntary water conservation tips include:

  • Adjust your sprinklers so that they’re watering your lawn and garden and NOT the street or sidewalk.
  • Water early in the morning (before 8 a.m.) or later in the evening (after 7 p.m.) when temperatures are cooler and evaporation is minimized.
  • Set it, but don’t forget it! Whether you have a manual or automatic system, be sure to adjust your water schedules throughout the irrigation season.
  • Inspect your overall irrigation system for leaks, broken lines or blockage in the lines.
  • Add a shut-off nozzle to your garden hose and save about 5-7 gallons each minute your hose is on.
  • Adjust your mower to a higher setting. A taller lawn provides shade to the roots and helps retain soil moisture, so your lawn requires less water.
