Water Conservation Tips
  • Reduce irrigation by 10 to 20%.
  • Find and repair leaks now.
  • Inspect and tune up irrigation system monthly.
  • Irrigate between midnight and 6AM to reduce water loss from evaporation and wind.
  • Water landscape by hand during evening hours.
  • Use a broom, not a hose, to clean driveway, deck or patio.
  • Use a bucket and a hose with an automatic shut-off nozzle when you wash the car, or take your car to a carwash that recycles water.
  • Cover pools and hot tubs to reduce evaporation.
  • Use front-loading washing machines.
  • Run the dishwasher and washing machine with full loads only.
