Water Conservation Tips

WaterSmart Tips, Tools & Resources

Water-saving tips
  • Cut back on outdoor watering. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, outdoor watering can account for up to 70% of home water use during the hot summer season.
    • Use sprinkler systems a maximum of two days per week and follow the PUA mandatory watering schedule (see below).
    • Only water during the cooler parts of the day: before 10 a.m. and after 7 p.m. During the heat of the day, much of the water will be lost to evaporation.
  • Have sprinkler systems evaluated. An irrigation system evaluation will assess your sprinkler system’s needs, alert you to any necessary repairs, and potentially help lower water use by up to 30%.
  • Incorporate water-efficient landscaping and drought-tolerant plants.
  • Add mulch to landscape beds and compost to turf areas to increase organic matter, keep plants healthy and prevent water loss through evaporation.
  • Cover swimming pools to reduce evaporation.
  • Install water-efficient faucets, toilets and shower heads.
  • Keep an eye on your water bill. Unusually high water use could indicate a leak. Fix leaks immediately.
