Water Awareness Month

  • Give trees a higher watering priority than other plants during drought. Trees are more difficult and costly to remove and replace.

  • Learn about your region's drought status by checking monthly updates on Arizona's short-term drought status.

  • During drought, reduce discretionary outdoor water uses, such as car washing or refilling pools and ornamental water features.

  • To protect your home from wildfires (which are more common during drought), make sure that plants near the house are more widely-spaced and lower-growing than those farther away.
