water conservation tips
Lessen the amount of water you use by following these tips:
Defrost frozen foods in the refrigerator or microwave, instead of running water over it.
Only run the dishwasher/washing machine when fully loaded.
When hand washing dishes:
Use two basins – one for washing and one for rinsing, rather than letting the water continuously run.
Repair dripping faucets & leaky toilets promptly.
Water your lawn no more than:
- every 3-5 days in the summer
- every 10-14 days in the winter
Water your lawn in the early morning, late afternoon, or evening, when not windy, to prevent water loss from evaporation.
Use a broom rather than a hose to clean sidewalks and driveways.
