Voluntary Water Conservation Tips

-Water grass/landscapes early in the morning or late in the evening to prevent water lost to evaporation.

-Water deeply and less frequently to encourage healthy root growth.

-Consider installing drip irrigation for lanscapes.

-Use a broom or rake to clean hard surfaces instead of water.

-Ensure your washing machine and dishwasher are full to capacity before running the load.
