Save Water, Help your Community
The community's water system's ability to provide culinary water for us depends on everyone doing their part! 
Without responsible water use our system might:​
- Lose water pressure in certain areas
- Lower water quality
- Failure to provide the Fire Department with enough water to fight a fire

How to Help​

  1. Raise your lawn mower cutting height. Longer grass needs less water.

  2. Delay planting any new grass, sod or other new landscaping.

  3. Don't fill swimming pools. If possible, cover the swimming pool; an uncovered pool will lose 900 to 3,000 gallons of water a month to evaporation, a covered pool losses 300 to 1,000 gallons a month.

  4. Use mulch around shrubs and garden plants to save soil moisture.

  5. Use a hose with a shut off nozzle if washing cars at home or wash at a facility that recycles water. Washing the car with the hose running uses 100 to 200 gallons of water.

  6. Sweep sidewalks and steps rather than hosing.

  7. Aerate turf areas.

  8. Know your plants' water requirements and apply only the amount required for good plant health.

  9. Monitor evapotranspiration (ET) data. Know how much moisture is lost to ET as this is what needs to be replaced back into the soil for good plant health.

  10. Monitor soil moisture to determine if watering is needed.

  11. Water between the hours of 8:00 p.m. and 9:00 a.m.

  12. Avoid watering on windy days or midday when the evaporation rate is the highest.

  13. Repair leaks in hoses, pipes, faucets and connections.
