Outdoor Water-Use Efficiency Tips

Lawns
  • Limit lawn irrigation to 3 days per week. *

  • Water lawns before 8 am or after 7 pm, when temperatures are cooler. *

  • Water for 2-3 minutes, wait 45 minutes, then water again for 2-3 minutes. This schedule will help prevent runoff and water lost through the soil.
