Water Consveration Tips #1

Here are some tips to save water:

    • When washing dishes by hand, don't let the water run while rinsing. Fill two sinks with water one for washing and one with rinse water.

    • Consider upgrading your refrigrators, air-conditioning, and ice-makers with air-cooled applainces for significant water savings.

    • Adjust spinklers so grass is hit not other things like sidewalk or house.

    • Use washer and dishwater when they are full. That can save 1,000 gallons a year.

    • Choose shrubs and groundcovers instead of turf for hard to reach places such of steep slopes and isolated strips.

    • Put covers on your pools or spas to check for pump links.

    • Use garbage disposal wisely so you don't waste water.

    • Plant in fall when conditions are cooler and rainfull is more plenty.
