Water Awareness Month

  • Check all outdoor hoses, connectors, and spigots regularly. Repair leaks as necessary.

  • Adjust sprinkler heads so they don't spray walls, driveways, or sidewalks.

  • Spray your lawns with only as much water as the ground can absorb; areas with hard compacted soils may need to be watered in increments.

  • Don't use a sprinkler meant to water a 15-foot area when an eight-foot sprinkler will do.

  • Use the manual option to turn on your irrigation controller and then check for leaks and other water-wasting problems.
