WE ARE EXPERIENCING ONE OF THE DRIEST YEARS ON RECORD, CONSERVE WATER NOW!!
With this being one of the driest years ever recorded, we can all do our part to conserve water.
Here are some tips to easily cut back on your water usage!
Water conservation is serious.
Take it personally.
Take action now.
Don’t let water run while shaving, brushing teeth or rinsing dishes.
Listen for dripping faucets and toilets that flush themselves. Fixing a leak can potentially save hundreds of gallons each month.
Read your meter and wait 10 minutes. Be sure to stop all water use inside and outside the home, including ice makers. When the 10 minutes are up, take another reading of the meter and compare it to the first reading. If the reading has changed, there is a leak.
Water between midnight and 6:00 a.m. to reduce water loss from evaporation and wind. Water your lawn and garden in 2 short cycles rather than one long one. Watering to a depth of 4 to 6” will encourage deeper healthier roots and allow the plants to go without water for longer periods of time.
Use a broom, not a hose, to clean your driveway, deck or patio. Washing a sidewalk or driveway with a hose uses about 50 gallons of water every 5 minutes.
