Help Conserve Our Water

Water is a valuable resource, so it’s important that we work together to protect the water that helps our community thrive. Join us in conserving this shared resource.

Quick Tips:

  • Irrigate in the early morning and use only as much water as your plants need.
  • Check irrigation systems for leaks, broken lines, or blockages.
  • Make sure that your sprinklers water plants, not pavement.
  • Consider replacing areas of your lawn that are infrequently used (such as front and side yards) with native plants that need less water in the summer.
