– Don’t run water when you’re brushing your teeth or shaving
– Only run your dishwasher with a full load, use ‘light wash’ if available, to use less water

Outdoor Tips

– Use mulch to retain moisture in the soil
– Wash vehicles on lawn and shut nozzle off when not using water
– Avoid over-watering your lawn. Most lawns only need one-inch per week. Water deeply, not frequently
– Raise your mower blade. A higher cut encourages deeper roots and retains soil moisture
– Cover pools and spas to reduce water evaporation
– Adjust sprinklers so only the lawn is watered
– Wash your pets outdoors on the lawn where your lawn needs watering
– Use a broom, not the hose, to clean driveways and sidewalks
– Water plants in early morning to conserve water and prevent fungus growing at night
– Outdoor watering June to September is restricted from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. daily
