Water Saving Tips 1 of 10



  • When washing dishes by hand, don't let the water run while rinsing. Fill one sink with wash water and the other with rinse water.
  • Evaporative coolers require a seasonal maintenance checkup. For more efficient cooling, check your evaporative cooler annually.
  • Check your sprinkler system frequently and adjust sprinklers so only your lawn is watered and not the house, sidewalk, or street.
  • Run your washing machine and dishwasher only when they are full and you could save 1000 gallons a month.
  • Avoid planting turf in areas that are hard to water such as steep inclines and isolated strips along sidewalks and driveways.
  • Install covers on pools and spas and check for leaks around your pumps.
  • Use the garbage disposal sparingly. Compost instead and save gallons every time.
  • Plant during the spring or fall when the watering requirements are lower.
  • Keep a pitcher of water in the refrigerator instead of running the tap for cold drinks.
  • Check your water meter and bill to track your water usage.
