Water Conservation Tips
Prolonged, dry conditions puts a strain on Texas water supplies for all uses. It just makes sense not to waste water. Here are a few tips to help you make better decisions about water use:
- In the summer, 50 – 80% of all water consumption is used outside and as much as half of
- Avoid cutting grass too short, longer blades of grass will reduce evaporation and root stress.
- Water in the early morning when evaporation loss will be less, and set sprinkler so that the lawn is watered, not sidewalks, driveways and streets.
- Check for and repair leaking faucets and toilets. A leaking toilet can waste more than 200 gallons of water a day.
- When it is time to replace water fixtures, ask for water saving fixtures such as low flow toilets, showerheads and water efficient appliances that can reduce your water consumption
