Outdoor Water Conservation

Tips for conserving water conservation outside include:

  • Turning off your hose when not in use when you are washing your car. Use a self-closing hose nozzle
  • Irrigate early in the morning or late at night to avoid evaporation
  • Make sure that your sprinkler system is in a good condition
    • Check for leaks
    • Confirm the heads are properly adjusted to eliminate any overspray on paved areas or buildings
  • If you have an automated sprinkler system, make sure the controller is properly set to achieve minimum watering levels
