From May 1st to
September 30th, non-essential outdoor water use is
only allowed two days per week, and before 9:00 AM and after 5:00 PM.
- Check your indoor water using appliances and devices
for leaks. Many silent leaks allow water and your money to go down the
drain. Studies have shown homes can waste water more than 10% due to
leaking, which costs you and the environment.
- Replace your toilet if it is old. It is the largest
water user in your home. Install a 1.6-gallon flush toilet to conserve
- Check leaks in your irrigation system. Inspect your
sprinklers and drip sprayers regularly during the daytime since optimal
time to water is in the nighttime hours.
- Replace your clothes washer. Energy rated washers
that also have a water factor at or lower than 9.5, use 35-50% less
- Water only what your plants need. Make sure your
irrigation system has a rain shutoff device.
