Practice Water Conservation Tips
Protect our local water supply and lower your water bill by practicing these water conservation tips inside and outside your home.
Outside Your Home
Water your lawn only when it needs it, preferably early in the morning to avoid evaporation.
Use a broom to clean sidewalks, driveways, and patios instead of a hose.
Set your lawn mower one notch higher to make your lawn more drought-tolerant.
Water plants in the early morning or evening, preferably using drip irrigation hoses.
Use gravel instead of asphalt to soak rainwater instead of contributing to runoff and erosion.
Inside Your Home
Use water-saver cycles on dishwashers & clothes washers. Don’t run them half full.
Match water levels in clothes washer to load size.
Turn off water while brushing teeth/washing dishes.
Regularly check toilets, faucets, and pipes for leaks and address them accordingly.
Choose water and energy-saving appliances.
Insulate exposed water pipes to avoid wasting water while it heats up.
