Easy Ways You Can Save Water

  • When watering your yard, make sure the water is applied only to the areas that need it (not the sidewalk or driveway).
  • Use a broom, blower or rake instead of hosing down driveways and sidewalks.
  • Run dishwashers and washing machines only when full.
  • Repair leaks in toilets, irrigation systems, hoses, and bathroom fixtures.
  • Don’t use the toilet or garbage disposal as a wastebasket.
  • Take shorter showers.
  • Install low-flow shower heads and faucet aerators.
  • Don’t leave the water running while brushing your teeth.
  • Switch spray irrigation to drip irrigation to avoid drift and evaporation. 
  • Use a soil moisture sensor for your landscape to see if it needs watering before watering.
